Apron Skirt Tutorial


Apron skirt 1

 

This is such a simple and easy little skirt to make. I wanted to do something different than just a bunch of plain skirts for Skirting the Issue and this is one of them that I decided on.

 

I used about a 1/2 yard for the skirt and maybe an 1/8 for the little apron. A fat quarter would be great!! 😉

 

 

Step 1 –

Fold over the edges on 3 side by a 1/4″, press and fold them again by 1/2″

Then  stitch them in place.

PRESS again!

 

Step 2 –

Next  cut out a heart from the main fabric, just like cutting a heart from paper. 😉

Then  pin it within an inch of its life and zigzag it all around.

PRESS!!

 

 

Step 3 –

Set the little apron aside and fold and press your hem. Fold and press 1/2 ” and then again by 3/4″.

Then  stitch it in place and press again!

 

 

Step 4 –

Now, pin the apron to the skirt, wrong side of apron to right side of skirt.

Sew a line of stitches across the top to secure the 2 pieces together.

 

 

Step 5 –

Next, pin and sew your back seam.

Press it.

 

 

Step 6 –

Now, you are going to make your elastic casing.

Fold over the top of the skirt by 3/4″ and press. Then fold it over by 1″ and press.

Sew the casing but make sure to leave an opening to insert the elastic.

Pin one (or both ends) of the elastic with a large safety pin and thread it through the casing.

Sew the ends of the elastic together.

Sew the casing closed.

You are now DONE!!!!!!

Sit back and admire your pretty little appliqued apron skirt! 😉

  2. I LOVE this! You know how much I ❤ vintage…. this reminds me of a cute little vintage farmgirl. ADORABLE!

  3. Fun! I’m sending this link to my niece who just got her own sewing machine and is learning to sew. So fun! (or should I say “sew fun”?) 🙂

  4. Stacy, this is adorable… I will have to make my granddaughters one.. thank you for sharing.

  5. Trying to figure out how much fabric to buy. How long was the skirt you made and waist measure stretched out?

    • I no longer have the finished skirt here. I made it to where it could fit sizes 4/5/6 depending on how long you would want it to be. It was a 1/2 yard of fabric to start with so that would be 18″ long before taking away for the elastic casing and hem.

  6. […] Apron Skirt Tutorial I just love old fashioned clothes for kids!! Not all the time but it’s nice to have some pieces. This was such a quick and easy little skirt to make. It can be easily personalized for the little girl in your life. […]
