Posted by CraftyHourMom at 6: I used the amazing circle skirt calculator by Patty of thesnugbug. The piping was a bear to get in nicely My mom’s birthday is April If I do use this pattern again, Pattedn might cut it longer so I can do a proper hem that will hang nicely.

Insa Skirt | Pattern: Insa from the book ‘Sewing Clothes Kid… | Flickr

Once part of it was pinned, I reached through the hole and was able to finish pinning and sew all the way around. Then I added a facing to the inside of the waist, instead of folding a casing down. Also, planning ahead for hem allowance would have been good. Cotton polka dots from the remnant bin, white cotton, ruffles of white crinkle cotton or gauze, also remnant Notions: Lots of the things are cut out now too, and I’ve planned embellishments, though they may change.

Posted by CraftyHourMom at 7: They did not lie flat – the culprit might be the lightweight fabric. Oh, well, another 2 yards off the shelf!! I seriously love this skirt, from the book Sewing Clothes Kids Love.

Insa Skirt

I understitched the neck facing. I am joining in for Kids Clothes Week this spring! Added a ruffle at the hem of the girl nightie loving the rolled hem feature on my serger! I’m challenging myself not only to sew for at least an hour a day, but also to use what I have in stash only.

The facing and the inner of the pockets are scraps from the polka dot ruffle top. I based my pattern pieces on a size 80 to fit her this summer, but I think pattern one may run wide.

Guess this one goes back on the pile to fix. I’d cut self facings next time, or bind the edges.

The colours aren’t quite true – it’s more of a light lime. She was over last night for a visit and translated a Dutch pattern for a friendso I was able to inda her a little something for her birthday! Hopefully can add some modeling pics later – she is in a skigt now. It looks more off-centre than asymmetrical I could not figure out how to do square inside corners without having it bench out.

Wednesday, April 10, Polka dot ruffle top. Also probably should have tried to make the overskirt part stop where the bodice of that colour stops. I have most of the patterns I want to use traced out, just a few left. I figure it will fit her a while, as a skirt, or under skirts or dresses. Buttonholes refused to work evenly on this because of the bulk of the piped edge, so I did snaps instead.


It’s a year ago also that I started this blog! Also did not do the button loop of fabric, but rather an elastic loop. The pattern directions were for an invisible zipper, which I didn’t have, so I had to try remember how to put a regular zipper in a dress with a lining.

I used the tutorial heremostly for dimensions. Not entirely happy with it, but it’s pretty cute.

I have been keeping track – so far, I have sewn over 18 yds from my stash and nothing new has gone on the shelf! I just ran the raw edges together through the serger, then pulled up on the needle threads to gather, so finishing, hemming, and gathering in one go! If I did it again, I’d do one size smaller for width and one size bigger for length.

Daisy Kingdom gingham, scraps of cotton skiry white and purple rose print Mods: This time I rounded the bottom corners, and I did the zipper ends again. I did the flames one as a single layer, and added an extra 1. Fun pattern, once again! Definitely more than one hour yesterday.
