Simple Tube Skirt

This basic skirt design is easy to make—you don’t even need a pattern. The design possibilities are endless as you put together strips, stripes, and layers of fabric. Start with a sketch while looking at fabrics and trims you have on hand. This skirt can be made with relatively small scraps. Put together the layers into one bigger piece of fabric, then sew it together to make a tube. Create a pocket at the top for a piece of elastic, and you're ready to step out in an awesome new skirt. Project designed by Joy Hayes. Skirts by Ruby and Isabella, ages 7 and 8.
