Pattern Description:

THIS IS THE EASIEST SKIRT PATTERN TO EASILY READ AND SEW UP! Even kids can sew this! This is a pattern I designed and wrote for beginners to sew. It is easy BECAUSE you don't have to make gathers or learn to do gathering, AND you don't have to measure and turn under the edge to hem or create casing for elastic ( an easier method) AND it's worked flat until the final step. An 8 year old sewing student of mine made this in two hour lesson! It is very easy to read and sew up.

Three pages of detailed, step by step instructions with diagrams, three pattern pieces. Pattern pieces to print out. Instructions included to change it to make skirt for a teenager or woman. Sew one up for every occasion and holiday with 2-3 different holiday fabrics!

I've taught beginning sewing for five years to ages 8 and up to adults. I saw the need for clear instructions with good diagrams for beginners. I've had many students make this pattern in class. They really like it. I wanted to create patterns that a new beginner, even children could follow along and complete as a first project.

#OperationChristmasChild This is a good project to make to put in the shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child.
