I apologize in advance if today’s post makes you want a baby! Recently my brother and his wife
gifted me with a niece had a baby girl! So I did the only logical thing an aunt could do and sewed up some tiny baby girl clothes. I started with the Spunky Girl Skater skirt pattern by Peekaboo Pattern Shop because it probably doesn’t get any cuter than a baby circle skirt. One cool thing about sewing a baby circle skirt is the tiny amount of fabric required. I was able to get these skirts from leftover fabric and have enough remaining to make matching bloomers and hats. Because, hello cuteness!! Another reason I chose the Spunky Girl Skater skirt pattern is because if goes down to 3 month size whereas many of my patterns start at size 2T.
The matching diaper cover you’ve seen here before, it’s the Perfect Diaper + Nappy Cover free tutorial from Dana Made It. This time I made it from knit fabrics, and it worked out just fine! Okay, so it’s super cute.
The matching hat is also a Skirt Fixation favorite baby gift, and also a free tutorial by Make It Love It.
The floral fabric is leftover from the Skipalong Skort from our Modern Chloris mini wardrobe collection, and is Art Gallery Skopelos Knit Paparounes Crimson Fabric.
The pink fabric is leftover from an Uptown Downtown dress. This is my favorite knit fabric from JoAnn Fabrics, (Sew Classic Knits Solid Interlock MANY COLORS) and I think I’ve gotten it in every color available. It’s stable and washes and wears well.
With leftover leftovers I appliqued the flowers onto the onesies to complete the ensembles. Just a little fancy refashioning of a plain white onesie!
As you can see, there are two baby circle skirt sets here, and I only have one niece! So the other set is available in our shop, coming soon right here.
And most of all, Happy Birth-day little niece! I foresee many skirts in your future!
