I made baby bean and a couple other toddlers I know some skirts.  They were pretty quick and really fun to make!  I definitely will be making more for baby soon!

The ruffle skirts were the easiest.  I got the material in the remnant bins at the fabric store.  The fabric doesn't fray when you cut it, so you can leave the raw edges at the bottom.  And its stretchy, so it can be sewn directly onto the elastic.

The cotton prints were a little more time intensive.  I cut the panels as long as I could, so generally 44-45" and 9" for the length.  I serged the top and bottom of the cotton prints and left the bottom surged edge as is to save me some time from having to do a fold over hem.  I did a gather stitch on the top edge and gathered it a bit to make it easier to attach to the elastic.  

Thanks for looking!
