A lazy day skirt for Elizabeth

Elizabeth's new skirt

This is a free pattern from Oliver + S. It’s called lazy day skirt, but really it could easily be called ‘crazy busy day skirt’ since you could accomplish this easily on a crazy busy day. It took me about 5 minutes. Maybe 7. maybe. I did it every lazier than the pattern in that I used some double fold bias tape I had on hand… I must stock up on different colours & widths — it’s so practical!

Elizabeth LOVES it.. And I’m very happy with it, especially because most of her clothes are casual, more casual than I like to see her “out and about” in unless we’re say, heading to the beach. Going to the market or a stroll in town requires a tiny bit more than jersey shorts for example and so I wanted to make her a few skirts & dresses.

The top matches perfectly — and it was a lucky find for 3.94$ on liquidation at Loblaws (a grocery store that also carries stuff and adorably simple affordable children clothes)

Next up for Elizabeth will hopefully be the 2 summer dresses in the Week-end Sewing book by Heather Ross that I’ve finally recieved! (it hung around with Canada Post for a little too long!)

  1. This one’s on my short list of skirt patterns for my dress loving girls. I just made them the elasticized dresses from Heather Ross’ book. I’ll have to post it and I’ll try to remember to come back and tell you when I’ve done it. I used yardage fabric for one and repurposed one of my skirts for the other. So easy and so cute.
