I found the idea for a wrap skirt here. I thought it sounded like a good idea. As always, I found a way to make it more complicated. There wasn't enough apple fabric, so I added the dots. And I made a wide bias tape to act as the tie. Then I figured out why a wrap skirt is difficult for a four year old to wear. So, I added a couple more "button holes" for the tie to act more like a belt. It does a much better job. Now I just have to teach my daughter how to sit in a skirt. I guess I better do that before preschool starts anyway.
It was a fun sew and very easy, even though I complicated it. I think it would work better for an older girl or woman. That's what I like about this tutorial - it lets you adjust it for your measurements. The shirt was something I made up. It was an experiment. Thanks to Target, it was only a $5 experiment.
