Lazy Days Skirt

Little girl’s simple, elastic-waist skirt with a unique ribbon hem.

This skirt is about as easy to sew as a skirt can be, since it’s made from a single width of fabric. With a simple elastic waistband, it’s also comfortable. But our favorite part is the ribbon at the hem. You can use almost any sort of ribbon in any width you like. It makes a clean finish to the hem, as you can see.

Material Notes

Cotton fabric, 3/4" elastic, ribbon in any width greater than 1/4"




Garment Type

    I love this skirt! I have made it a few times now and even made one for myself. I’m not a great sewer so it’s nice to be able to have a go to pattern like this for a skirt.
