First one made of stretch knit and I love it much.


And a second with a single fabric in the skirt and coordinating waistband.

I couldn't believe how easy they were!  It takes longer to cut out than to sew.  You must try it if you have girls!

Adorable!! I fell in love with KTLady's redondos a while back and had to order the pattern and make them for my girls for Easter.  I have yet to post them, but they turned out really well.  You're right, that pattern is not nearly as scary as it looks!  I found that pinning each curve to the next was a little tiring, but not difficult at all.  Yours out of knit looks so soft and comfy!  Great work!!

Pinning the curves?  I didn't even bother.  Just serged them together.   Cheesy

Ah...  I have yet to buy a serger, so I had to do it the hard way.  I guess I'll have to add "the Redondo" to my list of reasons to buy a serger!   Smiley

I would love to make some of these for my DD, but I've always thought the hem would be impossible without a serger... I too need to buy myself a serger.

very cute skirts. You could always use seam binding for the hem.

Those are adorable and love the matching shirts!  Did you machine embroider them? 

That's next on my list of machines to buy...that or a coverstich machine...right after I upgrade my DSLR camera.  Tongue  Too much stuff on the wish list LOL!

Just saw this, I've been away awhile.  Yes I did machine embroider them.  It was a huge investment that I don't use much but it is fun.   Cheesy
