|We might live in different states but with Jessica’s photo editing skills, our two little girls can be in the same picture!|
Today we are sharing how to make both the shirt and skirt! Heather will give you a quick tutorial on how to make the cute snowflake top and then Jessica will share her awesome sewing skills and teach you how to make the adorable skirt.
It might be easier if you keep your snowflake pattern next to your shirt as a guide.
Top Layer: 7″x36″ (2 pieces) Middle Layer: 7″x36″ (2 pieces) Bottom Layer: 10″x36″ (2 pieces)
*This is for a 2T. I would suggest adding about 1 inch in the length of each piece/size increase-Ribbon for the bows *varies depending on how big your want your bows but I used about 2 yards-Elastic thread -1 inch elastic -Trim for the layers like lace or tulle Regular sewing supplies like scissors, thread, etc Step 1: Cut out all your pieces. Sew each of your layer pieces to the matching piece right sides together on one side to make 3 long layer pieces.
Here is what you end up with:
Step 2: Lay all your pieces on top of each other with the bottom piece on the bottom and the top piece on the top. Baste your pieces together at the top of the skirt. Then with a loose stitch, sew across the top of the skirt leaving the ends long for gathering. Sew another line next to your first line again with a loose stitch leaving your ends long. Gather your skirt at the top until it is the same length as your waist band piece.
Step 3: Fold your waist band piece in half wrong sides together and press. Then sew the waist band piece to your skirt piece right sides together. Flip your waistband up and press.
