This adorable skirt merges the gap between preppy and trendy. It features three inverted box pleats, a flat-fronted waistband with elasticized back, and a sweet removable bow for easy washing. Because this pattern is sewn using your own body measurements, it can be made for children, teens, and women. Cover model is a size 10 (girls), for reference.
SUGGESTED FABRICS: quilting cottons, shirting, lightweight denim, satin, silk, twill, and chambray. Use Patty Young's fabric collections for a modern and eclectic look.
Since this skirt is made to size, the fabric quantities will vary greatly depending on your body measuements and how long you want the skirt. Plan on using about 3/4 yard for sizes 12M - 5T, 1 yard for sizes 6-10 and 1.5 or more yards for larger sizes. Shorter skirts may use less fabric. For the bow, you'll need 4" (linear) or 1/8 yard of fabric for all sizes.
• 3/4" wide Non-roll Elastic (enough for half of your waist)
• Metal Pin Back
• Coordinating thread
