Tween skirt love, Simplicity 1675

Simplicity 1675 with added ruffle

When asked about the biggest change in sewing for that older girl, I would say "separates."  My daughter loves to mix and match her clothes.  So, Simplicity 1675 has been made a few times around my house.  The cute "high/low" skirt that is so popular is super easy to make.  

Simplicity 1675, View C
Added a 4" ruffle to the bottom of the skirt.
Used my coverstitch machine to sew on the elastic waistband.

Chevron gauze from Hobby Lobby
(While the fabric quality from Hobby Lobby is not awesome, 
they do carry a few cute prints for the young ladies.)

The smile tells how much she likes this skirt.

Clothes at play!


  1. I generally hate the "hi-lo" look but you have pulled it off nicely! I think the issue is proportion, not above the knees in the front and at the ankles in the back. Less of a change works well, and you've done it! Maybe I'll try it with my six year old GD.
