The Wavy Notion Skirt Tutorial, Spring Collection 2012…



IMG_3541

When I was making this collection I was trying to find things that would be cute, yet easy at the same time. As many of you know, with 3 kids – finding time to sew the complicated things doesn’t always make the top of my list.

Sometimes I just want something that will be fast, easy, comfortable, and a real kid-pleaser. Because at the end of the day, if my child isn’t going to wear it – it wasn’t worth making it!

That’s where the Notion Skirt came in.

For determining the length of your elastic, I typically cut a piece about 70% the size of my child’s waist circumference.

And that’s it! How simple is that?!!

Later on in the week I will show you how to make the lace shirt that goes with it…it is easier than it looks!
