The season of gifting is upon us again and for me it starts with a few pre-Christmas birthdays.
This little skirt was part of a gift that also included the tiered Grand Revival skirt I blogged here, and a matching appliqued T that I didn't take a pic of.
It's a super-simple pattern by Kwik Sew - 3055; and is a straight-fronted, elastic-backed skirt.
I decided to make the waist adjustable and picked up some button-hole elastic to do it with.
It was easy to do - just make a button hole on the front piece of the skirt close to the side seams, prior to turning over the waistband.
Then sew a button in front of the button hole, thread the elastic through the waist and hook onto the buttons.
That way you can pull more elastic through to make it tighter or set to a looser fit just by playing around with the elastic.
In doing this I hope that the little girl it is for will get a little more wear out of it.
There are a few more on the cutting table getting read for Christmas.
