KCWC: baby circle skirts

More KCWC clothes!! (I’ve got more coming, too…I may (a teensy bit) be going through my nesting phase….)

I also whipped up some teeny tiny baby circle skirts yesterday….These took hardly any time at all. The only thing that slowed me down was a power outage. In the middle of hemming. In the afternoon. ??? Whatevs at least it only lasted an hour or so….It was cutting into nap time. (aka most precious time of the day)

Though it did force me to clean up the floor in my sewing room and cut out a few more projects, so it wasn’t a total loss. I used Dana’s tutorial and pattern for these, and of course it was fabulous!

The top fabric is from my sponsor My Fabric Store-from the Birch Storyboek line.

Middle fabric is Joel Dewberry, from the Heirloom line.

Bottom fabric is vintage reproduction from Etsy purchased a meellion years ago. (Ok I may be exaggerating.)

I also used some of the selvage from the JD fabric as a tag on the elastic, and some ribbon for the other two…I love how this looks. So easy but a fun little touch.


  1. Using the selvedge as a tag is so clever! Now I have one more thing to hoard!

    You are lucky that you have a nesting phase… I didn’t with either of my kids, but I really wanted that extra burst of energy and inspiration.

  1. […] had started on the skirt a few nights before, and had sewn the burp rags earlier in the week, so I mainly just finished […]

  2. […] Circle skirts are one of the easiest types of clothing to make for your little one. And they’re also the most simple way to jazz up a classic, baby onesie as well. {found on Craftiness is not Optional} […]

  3. […] and so this circle skirt project came along. It’s pretty easy if you are up to it, click here and here or maybe just save it for a future project! It’s also a great baby girl shower […]
