***And when you are finished with Susan’s post hop on over to Project Run and Play to read about our exciting announcement!***
Hi all! I’m Susan from Living with Punks. My littlest punk has an obsession with skirts…she doesn’t want to ever wear shorts or pants because as she says it, “I’m not a boy”. No kidding! I love thinking up new ways to have new styles for her to wear so I love this series and can’t wait to use some of the ideas for her and for the sew-along. Because foster children can be any age or size, I’m going to give you a formula to make any size you want! But first, here are a few other skirts I’ve made:

This skirt has an attached apron for added cuteness. It’s an easy one, so follow along!
I love knit fabric…. it can take some practice getting used to but there are so many hints and tricks out in blogland, before you know it, you will be using it for everything you sew. Knits are so soft and confortable to wear and if you think about it, practically any type of clothing you buy from a store is from knit.
You can find the dimensions for your own skirt by using this formula:
Skirt: Measure your waist. Add 50%. (20”+10”=30”)
Measure where you want the skirt to fall and add 3”. (11.5”+3”=14.5”)
Apron: 6” less than your skirt length (14.5”-6″=8.5”) and 2” less than half the overall width(30”/2=15”-2”=13) Apron is 8.5”x13”
Here are my measurements for a 4T:
Knit underskirt: 14.5”x30”
Apron: 2 pieces cut 8.5”x13” (round the bottom corners on both pieces)
Ruffle: 2”x76” (more or less)
