I gave the tutorial for it in this post. I took a look at that tutorial again, and made a few more. However this time I tried it in mini sizes.
It works...right down to a tiny little newborn size!
I tried it with cotton, knit, and seersucker. The knit fabric has less flair to it, obviously, because of the nature of the fabric.
I did find that I liked it better adding 20 inches to the width, rather than 10, like the original tutorial says. Extra fabric isn't too flattering on adult figures, but on little folks, it just makes it cuter. You can see the difference between the pink skirt on the left and the paisley on the right. The pink has the extra width added.
I didn't add the ruffle bit on the bottom of these, but instead sewed ribbon around the edge. Ruffles would be cute too, it is just more time consuming.
If you've not experimented with elastic thread before, you seriously need to! It can get addicting though, I'm warning you!
