I wanted to make a little girls skirt pattern that looked like a neat zippered skirt from the front but that was also practical & would be wearable as our little girls grew. As our kids grow so fast, an elastic back waist was the perfect way to achieve this, allowing for a skirt that our little girls can wear longer without complaining that the waist is cutting off their circulation (which I must admit can be very dramatic and very cute at the same time). This girls skirt features a flat front waistband that looks just like a zipped skirt from the front and an elastic back waistband giving an easy fit, for longer. There are 3 lengths you can choose from: 1) Mini Skirt that sits mid-thigh 2) Tea Skirt that sits around knee length 3) Midi Skirt that sits below the knee And then there are 3 options for how much gather you'd like: 1) Lightly Gathered 2) Regular Gather 3) Very Gathered And finally, there's the optional added extras: 1) Curved Pocket with bound edge 2) Straight Pocket with bound edge 3) Curved Plain Pocket 4) Straight Plain Pocket 5) Ruffle Hem _____ SIZES: 2-10 _____ TECHNIQUES: Straight stitching, gathering, inserting elastic, binding (optional) _____ LEVEL: Easy _____ USER FRIENDLY TERMS OF USE: I love seeing both new and experience sewers enjoy sewing and wearing clothes made from my patterns. I also know that not everyone can sew (I can, my sister can't). So, small home-based handmade business selling items on Facebook, ETSY or similar are welcome to sell products made from this pattern, but I do kindly ask that you reference Pattern Emporium somewhere in your product descriptions (for example "This skirt was made using a Pattern Emporium pattern").
