Skirts are the next best thing after dresses and sometimes skirts are even better. Especially our middle daughter loves skirts. During my last sewing weekend I sewed up two skirts for our two eldest girls with the Little Treasures Skirt by Duck Butt Designs. If you like colour blocking Duck Butt Designs is a great designer. All her designs include options to go all the way with amazing combinations of fabric.
I love Duck Butt Designs because of the colour blocking, so that is also what I did with the skirts for our girls. A big colour blocking pocket to put all those treasures in. I indeed have to make sure to clear out those pockets before washing them or I end up with a lot of different objects in my laundry.
There are different options included in the pattern. There are two different lengths. I chose the longest length. Additionally, there are three different options for the waistband, a yoga waistband, folding and a waistband with elastic. There are even optional undershorties included in the pattern, which are attached to the skirt. I made both skirts in knit but you can even use woven fabrics, as long as the waistband is knit. Such a versatile pattern!
Sizing: 3M – 12Y
