ABOUT THIS PROJECT: These easy instructions are great for advanced beginners on up. Cutting instructions - not printable pattern pieces - are included. Sizes: 6-12 months to 12/14 tween Materials needed: focus fabric - cotton, calico, lightweight corduroy or denim coordinating fabric 1 package piping 3/8" wide elastic coordinating thread Sizing & Fabric Requirements A Note About Sizing: The most important measurement to go by when deciding which size to make, is the waist measurement. The skirt has an elastic waist, but is fairly fitted by design. The skirt should fall just above the knee; length for each size is listed in the sizing chart. However, you can easily lengthen or shorten the skirt by adding to, or subtracting from, the height of the pleats. If you lengthen the skirt, don't forget you may need more fabric than what's listed here. ? IS THIS SEWING PATTERN REALLY "EASY TO FOLLOW?" Aivilo Charlotte Sewing Patterns are written in everyday English, as if a friend were telling you how to sew, with full color photos illustrating the process step-by-step. Each pattern is tested by a panel of sewists of many skill levels - to ensure the instructions are clear so you can enjoy a frustration-free sewing experience. Plus, if you have any questions while sewing, I'm always available at aivilocharlotte [!at] gmail.com to help you. Check my feedback for actual customer comments on the ease of use of my patterns! ?
