Sewing Adventures: Girls Japanese knit skirtBy Susan | Comments: 14 | September 15, 2014
After the fun of making the City Gym Shorts for my niece I decided to make something else for her.
A few weeks ago I won a copy of Cucito on Instagram. I was so excited as it was so unexpected. It arrived in a lovely parcel and I fell in love with this gorgeous knit skirt (and pretty much every other style in the magazine).
From the stash I grabbed this 2 faced knit. It’s wonderful soft and has spots on one side and stripes on the other, could there be a cooler fabric? The hem and the pocket openings are all bound using cotton bias binding, also from the stash.
I traced out the pattern and didn’t make any adjustments from the instructions apart from attached the elastic in a slightly different manner. No big reason I just like doing elastic in a different way.
It looks adorable, I so want it in my size for the summer! Making kids clothes is fun as it’s so speedy and everything looks cute at tiny sizes.
