I'm going to Disneyland on Thursday and these are the skirts I've made for my friend's little girls, they are 2 and 4.

I had this Frozen fabric in my stash...not quite enough of it to make skirts but I decided my quilt piecing skills would come in handy and I just added some solid pink cotton to the top.



I bought 2 yards of this Princess fabric a year or two ago on a close-out sale for $3 a yard! I made these two skirts for the girls and 1 for their mom as well! I wanted to use binding for a few of these skirts but couldn't find all my binding (I moved last fall lol) However, I did find this partial package of dark blue binding in a random box, so I used it for a pop of color and also I didn't want to iron another 2 hems lol!



I have 2 more skirts in Minnie fabric I am almost done with, I will add pics when I finish the hems and the waistbands.

For all skirts, including those for me, I did a super simple easy full skirt. I cut the fabric width twice as big as the waist, piecing panels as needed.  For the ones with trim or that were too short I added an extra piece of fabric horizontally before stitching the side seam(s). Then a hem and a simple fold over waistband that I inserted elastic into!

I ended up with 9 skirts, 2 for me, 1 for my friend, and 6 for the girls. 2 yards of fabric I already had for $3 a yard, I spent $10 on elastic and $35 on additional fabric, plus pulled a few bits from my stash. $51 for 9 skirts, of licensed characters no less? Not too shabby! Smiley

Hems are the worst. These are so cute and I'm sure those little girls are going to be so happy in their skirts at Disneyland.

They are so cute and WOW what a crazy deal! All of those would have cost a fortune to purchase I'm sure. Yay and hooray for DIY, money saved for more fun on your trip!

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.
