My girls are skinny so I made a 98/104 for my 7 year old and a 62/68 for my one and a half year old (I based my decision on the size table). I used the length of one size up (which corresponds to their actual length) and the skirts fitted perfectly both length and width wise.
Both the skirt types are mend to made of jersey (although some testers tried and succeeded in making the circle version in woven as well). Not much fabric was needed for these straight fits, I made them from the same fabric as this dress. My three girls therefore can be dresses as triplets. I had bought one meter frog prince jersey and now the only thing that remains is really scraps.
The side seam is intentionally of centre, which puts the pockets on the front of the body. The skirts have a yoga waistband without elastic in the hem. The skirts sewed up very quickly.
I was requested to make the straight version, but I will make the circle version soon, I have seen many adorable versions from other testers. The straight fit is a bit shorter than the circle skirt, which makes for perfect freedom of movement as can be seen on the following pictures.
I had too many nice pictures, so here are a few more, just feel the sisterly love.
I love to hear what you think of my creations. Feel free to leave a comment in the language you prefer (although Google translate might have to assist me if you choose something different than English, German, Dutch or Hungarian).
