The skirt is basically a pair of rectangles with elastic. It didn’t even need a pattern, but the finished result is quite adorable. I leave the raw edges of the strips shown, and after washing, it frayed a bit and the blue threads are exposed.
I’ve posted a little tutorial in my blog if you want to make it.
Japanese thick cotton in black and brownish swirl patter, Tais cloth from East Timor, Indonesia for the strips.
