Hi everyone! Jessica from Me Sew Crazy here, a Season 2 contestant, and one of the ‘sewalong’ judges for Project Run & Play!

I am honored to be taking part in the Skirting the Issue event, helping children in Foster Care is a fantastic cause. And I applaud Liz & Elizabeth for taking it on this Summer!

That being said, I really wanted to come up with a skirt that would be able to fit multiple sizes. It’s easy to use a skirt you already have on hand as a template. But more often than not – if you are making something for a child that isn’t yours (like one in Foster Care for example), you don’t have that template skirt.

So how do you make something that is guaranteed to fit a child of multiple ages and sizes, without using elastic? I give you my version of the Wrap Skirt…

By adapting the traditional wrap skirt by using multiple buttonholes along the waistband, this ensures a proper fit every time.

And of course, by not using elastic this wrap skirt is suitable to make for any age or size – Child, teen, or adult!

So, let’s get down to business. Making the Wrap Skirt.

If making this for a child, you will need approximately 1 yard of fabric and your basic sewing essentials.

For your free pattern to fit sizes 3 thru 6T, see below at the end of this post.

But I will also show you how to draft your own pattern.

You may want to add more than one beltloop for the various sizes. This ensures a proper fit and keeps the waist band tie in place.

And there you have it!

A super cute Wrap Skirt that will fit just about anyone…
