I made a couple of simple skirts for my niece this Christmas. As is often the way, I was lured over to Elephant in my Handbag, who have some excellent novelty prints including this fabulous Peter Pan design by Sarah Jane for Michael Miller.
While I was there, I also snapped up the very last piece of this gorgeous border print featuring Peter Pan, Wendy, John and Michael (and Michael's teddy bear, just hidden around the side!) flying over a London cityscape.
They really are the simplest little skirts to make. I know I've said this about a lot of things, but I really must write up a tutorial for you sometime. For a skirt that will fit a child up to about age seven or eight, all you need is half a metre of fabric and enough elastic to go around their waist. Easy peasy!
I've lost count of how many of these little skirts I've made for her, but I absolutely love seeing pictures of my niece wearing them. It warms my heart that she's almost eight, and still (for now) happy to wear things that her silly Aunty makes.
