These were cute, easy skirts made for a friend's three girls. For the older girls I used the tutorial found here: http://bridgetbaxter.blogspot.com/2009/04/ta-da-double-layer-skirt.html Don't wait to check it out because she may not have her blog available for viewing after the holidays. They are so easy, that if you are a confident sewist, you probably won't need directions for making these anyway.
For the baby's skirt, I just added a skirt to the top of a little pair of puffy pant*ies. Easy, quick, and cute! The pant*ies (spelling adjusted so that I don't come up in a google search for unmentionables!) pattern is my 'go to' pattern from AS&E #53 (Australian Smocking & Embroidery). Happy Holidays and Happy Sewing!
