  1. great tutorial! I just made one of these the other day…too bad I didn’t wait until you did this! 🙂

  2. Thanks so much for this tute! I can’t wait to try it. Hopefully I can figure it out for a size 4T!

  3. You know… the way you put the elastic in is genius. I’ve made about 15 gathered skirts in the last six months and it never occurred to me. I’m definitely trying it for #16. Thanks!

  4. Lyn,
    This is adorable! Where did you find all the adorable fabric? I may try to make one for Adah for this summer. Great idea! 🙂

  5. This is absolutely precious. I love your choice of fabrics. I will definitely be making my 4 year at least one of these! By the way, I think the other poster Jessica wants the sizing in a 4T so if you have a way to get in touch with her tell her to send me a message and I will send her my measurements when I am finished figuring them out.

  7. Lynn, any idea on measurements for a 2T skirt???

    • Please forgive me for not responding sooner….we just had a baby, and I haven’t been onliine much!

      Here are the pattern’s measurements for size 2T:

      drop waistband (cut 1 on fold): 5-1/2″ x 12″

      strips for main skirt: 5″ x 8-1/2″

      hem band: 5-1/2″ x 30″
      *note: the pattern says to use this hem band measurement, and cut 3, but that is if you are making the skirt twice as gathered/full, using 4 strips of each fabric. If you are making it with only 2 strips of each fabric, then my formula for figuring out the hem band length is to multiply the strip width (for the main skirt) times 10 (because you are using 10 strips), and add 1-2 inches for seam allowances. So, 5″ x 10= 50″ + 1-2″ seam allowance=51-52″ in length. Hope this helps!

  8. Thanks for the tutorial, I added more strips to make it fuller and used ribbon for the hem. My 9-year old daughter LOVES it! It’s so easy I am planning on teaching her how to make them with me. So fun!

  9. Wow, I did not heard about this topic till now. Thanx!

  10. Thanks so much for this tute! I have made 4 in the last 3 months! 🙂

  11. I see you are wearing one while making another one for your daughter. I will try it out. thanks.

  12. okay, so i want to know how you made the skirt that you’re WEARING, too!

  13. Do you have measurements for a 4T skirt of elastic & other pieces? ADORABLE!!!

  14. This is great! Do you know measurements for a 4T skirt???

  15. Will you send measurements for a 4T if you have them? Thanks!

    • Jessica, I’m so sorry that I didn’t see your question! Here are the measurements for a 4T:
      Drop Waistband (cut 1 on fold): 13″ wide x 5-1/2″ high
      Strips for Main Skirt (cut 2 of each fabric): 5-1/2″ wide x 9-1/2″ high
      Hem Band (cut 3): 33-1/4″ wide x 6″ high

      And, because your little one might have grown since then, here are the measurements for a size 5:
      Drop Waistband: 13-1/2″ wide x 5-1/2″ high
      Strips for Main Skirt: 5-1/2″ wide x 10: high
      Hem Band: 33-1/4″ wide x 6″ high

      Hope this helps!
      Lyn 🙂
