I love making quick and easy projects, and this little wrap skirt for Ami fits the bill! I made this start to finish in about an hour. One of my favorite things about making clothes for Ami is that I need so little material to make something cute. I usually just stock up on remnants since I usually need less than a yard to make something for her.
The pattern for the skirt is self drafted. I wanted to make something for my daughter that was more like my own clothing, and less little girl. I got a lot of inspiration from the skirts I’ve sewn recently from my Japanese pattern book Shape Shape and after putting a few together knew just the shape I wanted. I went with a simple 2 button closure since it’s easier to put on my little wriggler.
Aren’t these buttons adorable! I’ve been waiting for the perfect project to use these. I got them from Joann’s probably a year ago. The fabric is a cute blue seersucker stripe that was a remnant from Joann’s that I bought before the holidays and never used.
I’m working on making a tutorial to go along with this skirt. So stay tuned for that!
