You can find an easy tutorial for circle skirts from MADE. The larger skirt, a 2T size, is simply two circle skirts sewn together to form the two layers. Cut out one skirt just a little longer than the other. Put the shorter over the longer, right sides facing out.
Sew elastic to the waist, and finish off the edges. I lettuce edged this one since I used knit material. I think this one would be fun to do with two coordinating prints or colors. I didn't have anything that matched orange on hand so I stuck to the same fabric.
For the newborn size one, I only did one layer. I sewed the elastic on and then sewed ruffled ribbon to the edges. Ruffled ribbon might be my new obsession, LOVE that stuff!
These skirts take no time at all to do and look just cute as can be on little girls.
The other set I made is out of red polka dot knit.
For the 2T size, I cut two rectangles and two longer rectangles. The smaller is about 4 inches wider than my daughter's waist and the bottom is about 5 inches longer than the top.
I gathered the bottom section and sewed it to the top.
I then sewed the front of the skirt to the back and made a casing with elastic around the top. I added a little bow to gathered waist and finished off the edges with a lettuce edge. You can use this exact same method to make an adult size peasant style skirt. They are very comfy!
The newborn one is just a rectangle gathered with elastic along the top. I sewed ric-rac to the bottom to give it some fun.
I think this will be a great Fourth of July skirt for the little lady, if I can come up with a cute top for it.
