Betsy's Simple Skirt is a straight skirt with just enough room for active girls who might like something a little more special than a typical A-Line skirt. This skirt is gathered at the waist and has two layers. The bottom layer peeks out of the bottom without any ruffles. It's a simple skirt for a child who loves color but not a lot of fuss and hits below the knee on most girls. Choose two fabrics for this skirt, one for the overskirt and one for the underskirt. Please ask if you need some help choosing fabrics. We have especially enjoyed them in the cotton lawn fabrics. Side pockets are not available on this skirt because it is fully lined. Approximate finished lengths are shown below and you may change it as needed. Pattern used by permission from Monaluna.
We have added this skirt in size 12. Please note that this is but a slight A-Line skirt in the larger sizes and does not have much more room in the hips than at the waist. It will fit well on a girl that is slim built. For those who would need more room at the hips, please try one of our fuller styles.
If you have a child who does not fit into a size fairly close to her age, please use the contact form at the top of the page to drop us a note so that we can help you with sizing.
