1 down 3 to go…

I have finally got my bottom into gear and started making my daughters school skorts (they look like a skirt but are infact a short). With only a week before school starts I am cutting things fine. I can dooooo iiiiitttttt.

1 made and 3 more to go.

I confess though that they are pretty quick to whip up as all the seams are unfinished. The great thing with working with Jersey as it does not fray.
You too can make one of these using my tutorial that includes a pattern for size 5/6.

The ‘Back to School Skorts’.

My little miss is not a fan of wearing shorts, yet as with most little girls they have yet to learn to sit like a lady. I had a search at other tutorials on the net but I was yet to find the right skort I had in mind. So off to the the drawing board and after a few failed attempts I ended with a working pattern.

Happy Sewing!!
