Today’s project is a kid’s skirt made with a lovely fawn design fabric from petit bonheur, a series that is filled with lines of tiny motifs. A circular wrap skirt that creates a cascading beautiful drape is even prettier in this shiny cotton sateen fabric. A regular contributor of children’s clothing in this column, Yuka Yonekura is here again to introduce her new creation.
Fabric shown for this sample: P33500-500 (D)
□ Fabric (Main fabric: Skirt) 1.10m x 110cm wide
(Belt) Linen (solid color) 85cm x 14cm
We interviewed Yuka about her creation:
Kokka Fabric (KF): What did you think of the fabric you used for this project?
It has such a lovely design that I instantly thought of making a skirt for fall.
KF: Can you tell us any special elements or ideas that you incorporated into this creation?
The fabric is soft, yet has some thickness. To incorporate these characteristics, I came up with a circular wrap skirt. The beautiful drape makes it special. Another feature is that I used a different fabric for the belt. Solid color fabric adds a mature finish to the skirt.
KF: What are some tips for making this skirt?
This fabric is very easy to sew. You can make this skirt easily.
KF: How should we wear this skirt in everyday situations?
Color coordination is easy with this fabric. Wear something in a solid color for the top as an accent and it will make you look very stylish.
KF: Thank you very much, Yuka! Here are sewing instructions along with step by step photos from her. Enjoy crafting!
