Girls DIY High-Low Skirt

Last summer when I went to Europe a saw a lot of these high-low skirts around. I remember the first time (at least in my lifetime) when they were in style and I didn't like them back then. But maybe having 20 years to get used to the idea has changed my heart and I really quite like the look now.

Since my daughter is so tall and skinny, it's hard to find dresses and skirts are narrow enough and long enough. So I decided to make one for her using some leftover fabric from a shirt I had made for myself. (I may post that later. Can't decide quite how I feel about it.)

Usually when I try to photograph her, she will only be silly and crazy, but this time she turned on her modeling charm!

I did a google search for how to make a high-low skirt and got a general idea of how to cut the fabric. That was the scariest part. The rest was easy. Just a serged the top, did a basting stitch around the top to gather it, and sewed it onto an elastic waistband using a zig zag stitch. Seriously so easy.





The best part? This fabric cost me $4 on clearance, and I got a shirt and a skirt out of it!

Love the skirt and your little model. Hilarious. And baby R is adorable. I am already sad that Piper is 1 and walking. Sad and happy actually, but I miss the chunky baby.

Such a cute skirt! It lays so nicely and looks full without being overwhelming. But your model, oh my! I can't believe how old she looks. Congrat's on such a beautiful daughter.
