Kids clothes week starts today! I am working on starting some stuff, but of course I haven't finished anything to show you yet. I am hoping to get around to some more stuff for my boy this week. But in the meantime, here is a recent skort I made for my girl.
This is the Monkey Bar skirt from Hey June and the pattern is FREE! Check it out here*. This is a super cute skirt and perfect for little girls to play in. I love that it has the shorts underneath because little girls need to play and are not always concerned about modesty (unfortunately I didn't get a good picture of those this time. I'm working on another of these already, though, and I'll get that picture next time.) This skirt has you covered. It has a knit waistband, 2 different options for a gathered skirt (the other option is a drop waist), and the shorts underneath. It was an easy sew and I think it turned out pretty cute.
The pattern includes sizes 2-10. Since it is a free pattern, it does not include all the features of a paid pattern. I found the instructions to be just fine. But, you will find that there is not a size chart included. I made my daughter a size 2, but added a but of length, which I think was perfect. The waist fits exactly like her similar store bought ones in size 2. (Side note, I kept looking at the pieces as I cut them out thinking no way this tiny thing will fit her. Sure enough, it's perfect. LOL.)
And she thought I needed a picture of her running!
