I have five granddaughters. For Easter, I make them dresses—or buy them—if I got carried away and spent waay too much on sewing them. There have been a few of those! This year they wanted bubble skirts. I let each one choose the fabric—they all went sparkly, and then got busy. They were pretty simple. I had already made a bubble skirt, so I got the girls’ measurements and figured it out. Apparently I got away without making any doll skirts.
My daughter, Kate, at A Piece of Kates made her girls the matching flowers.
They are easy to make. First I measured around the childs waist, added about 1/2 again for the gathering at the waist, make the outer skirt a little larger than the inner skirt. I cut the front and back the same with the waist being the smallest and the bottom belling out. Does that make sense? Then the outer skirt is just a couple of inches wider and longer than the inside skirt. Gather the bottom and elastic the waist and presto, finished! They are cuter in person than in pics!
I still love them! I wish I could get away with wearing a sparkly bubble skirt! P.S. I don't have any pics of them together-- two live away and I don't know why we didn't get the others together...
