oliver + s lazy days skirts

Muppet’s into wearing skirts last week so I thought I’d make her some. I found this free Lazy days skirt pattern from oliver + s and I made 2 last weekend. I think I made the pink elephant skirt in 1 hour or less. The watermelon skirt took a bit more time because I ran out of ribbons, and I couldn’t decide if I should put ric racs instead but in the end I just used a bias tape to accentuate the bottom of the skirt. It’s a really good pattern for beginners like me, and the muppet wore them during the entire weekend so it really made me happy. She’s finally wearing something I made and she really loves them. I might make her some more soon.


I always thought it’s so cute when sewing bloggers use washi tape to display a kid’s clothing so I had to try it


But I think my washi tape’s a bit flimsy so this was what I got most of time while trying to take a photo of the pink skirt




I was planning to put 2 strips of the blue bias tape to the Watermelon skirt but I got lazy. Anyway, I didn’t use the recommended 3/4 wide elastic because I didn’t have one so I might replace the elastic one day and add that second strip of blue bias tape 🙂




Yup, that’s her bathing suit under her skirt. And she’s carrying a bucket too. We’re on our way here to the water park but as always the cat distracted her.


She wore it at the playground too
