How have you gotten creative with your Easter eggs?
This cute little skirt was made from dishtowels!
Inexpensive, easy to sew, already hemmed and festive:
Holidays always bring the cutest little linens. I picked up these two Easter-themed dishtowels from Target and made them into a skirt for Boo:
Here’s how to make your own! Dishtowels are perfectly sized for a girl’s skirt up to about a size 6.
Step 1 & 2: Lay out your dishtowels and cut them in half.
Step 3: Cut off the side seams, but leave the bottom seams.
Step 4: I used the towel with the bunny as a patchwork panel so I trimmed the sides.
Step 5 & 6: Sew together your panels to create 2 large panels.
Step 7 & 8: Once you have two larger completed panels, place them on top of each other and sew the side seams together.
Step 9 & 10: Turn your skirt inside out and fold the top edge over about 1.5″ to form a casing for elastic. Finish the raw edge.
Step 11 & 12: Stitch your casing closed leaving about an inch opening to insert the elastic into. Thread the elastic through, sew the elastic shut and close the casing.
I added some pretty crocheted trim at the bottom of the skirt for some extra detail:
Dainty and pretty!
The finished skirt:
To make a matching tank, I made a little pom-pom from crocheted trim……
…..and sewed it to a plain camisole:
An Easter-themed outfit! A quick sew and great for a beginner project.
