Reversible Pom Pom Trim Skirt
Sew an adorable double-sided skirt with pom-pom trim with this beginner-friendly sewing tutorial that includes step-by-step photo instructions.
My daughter has been on a skirt kick recently and by kick I mean that she insists on wearing each skirt for multiple days at a time.
So in an effort to give her outfits a little bit more longevity, I came up with a double-sided skirt tutorial. It’s incredibly simple to make and it gives you twice the bang for your buck!
This adorable car print is part of Patty Young’s latest fabric collection with Riley Blake Fabrics named Club Havana. I paired this print with a Riley Blake mint green and white-striped fabric and light pink pom-pom trim.
2 Coordinating Fabrics
1 Inch Wide Elastic
Pom Pom Trim
Measure the waist of the child you will be making the skirt for. Then measure from the waist to the knee.
The waist measurement for my daughter was 21 inches. From her waist to her knee measured 14 inches
Cut two large rectangles of fabric.
The width will be the width of the fabric and the length will be the measurement from the waist to the knee.
My rectangles measured 44 inches wide by 14 inches tall.
(they are folded in half in the photo below)
Turn the raw edge of the skirt under 1/2 inch on both sides of the skirt.
Sew the folded edges of the skirt together with a 1/4 inch seam allowance leaving a 2 inch opening for the elastic. Sew another seam line 1 1/2 inch from the original seam. This will create a casing for the elastic.
Cut a piece of elastic the same size as the waist measurement. Attach a safety pin to the elastic and thread it through the casing. Once you reach the beginning of the elastic, gently pull both sides and layer them on top of each other.
Show your cute skirt off to your little girl! She’s sure to love it!
