Been a bit quiet here lately (my site got hacked 😭 and Christmas and that) but I’m back and I’ve recently been helping to test the new children’s skirt pattern from Puperita!
It’s called the Wee Bonnie Skirt and is a Scottish inspired modern kilt. It is super cute and just in time for you to whip one up ready for Burns Night!
The skirt could also be styled up in so many ways so it can be used year round. Paired with tights and boots, it makes the perfect little winter outfit!
It has a great tutorial on how to make the skirt with traditional tartan fabrics, with instructions on how to get the pattern to match up across the skirt pieces and through all the pleats. I chose to make mine out of a solid navy twill for this version but have been eyeing up some really sweet, grey baby cord with little stars on from our local fabric shop recently which I think would make an incredibly cute skirt. The pattern is also suitable for any medium weight cotton, corduroy, lightweight wool, wool blends or denim.
I had a few issues with the pleats not coming up the right size (I was about 3mm out on each fold which all adds up!) But after re-measuring them it all went together super quick!
The pattern covers sizes from birth to 10 years and as with all Puperita patterns it is really easy to follow and really quick to sew up.
You can view more info and purchase the pattern through Puperita’s Etsy Shop here.
