Description

During the novemberholiday I spend a day making skirts with my 8 year old daughter and her friend.
Apart from cutting they did everything, overlocking the edges, stitching the seams, the hemline,…
The skirt is a simple rectangular, it has a seam for an elastic in the waist. This is a fun and easy project to do with children, they have a finished garment and they learn to work with a sewingmachine.
The girls are so proud of their result!

Material Notes

cotton fabric, elastic for the waist

    What a lovely idea. I haven’t thought about letting my 7 year old daughter loose on the sewing machine yet… bit of a scary thought. But I just showed her the lovely picture of your girls and sewed the seed, so to speak. Great thing to do for a playdate, or two! Thank you for the inspiration.
