I made myself one of these a few weeks back and love it, so thought the littlest Crafty Kid needed one too.
They are very quick and easy to whip up, using the Crafty Mamas A Line skirt tute.
The yoga style waistband is very comfy for kids, and most seem to wear them pushed under their tummies.
So grab your sweater style knit, and get started!
This skirt is knee length, but you do whatever length you wish.
3. I like the BiG Pockets to start at the top of the skirt, and run down 2/3s of the length.
So measure down 2/3's of the way and mark on each side. This is your bottom placement line for your pockets.
5. Also make these marks 1cm down from the top of your skirt. See..smiley!
NOTE: In this skirt I am enclosing the top of the pocket in the sewing of the waistband, and the sides of the pockets in the side seam of skirt. In the adult, they were patched on. You do whatever you prefer!!
7. Now lets create our pocket. Measure in 5cm from side of your skirt front, at the top. Mark.
If you are going to enclose your side and top pockets in skirt side seam and waistband, only sew the YELLOW edges of pocket down.
If you are going for complete patched on pockets follow the RED. You will sew on all edges apart from the hand opening ( duh...or your kid will not be able to get their hand in!).
15. From here on in, it's plain sailing. Simply sew up your skirt as per the Crafty Mamas tute. Sew your sides together, then apply your waistband.
Note; For a child, I like to make the yoga band about 15cm deep instead of 20cm.
These Sweater skirts are so lovely and snuggly, we love them! Would be great in STELLA or French Lycra Terrry, too!
