Japanese Bubble Skirt

March 23, 2012

A little friend of ours is turning 5! Currently this sweet little number is winging its way to her house.

Its a really simple cute as a button pattern from this Japanese kids clothing book.

I actually had a few issues with the pattern itself. Well I think that was the problem. If my guessing at what the Japanese means is right (and its probably not) some of the measurements are way out. In the end I took the general idea of the skirt and made most of it up. I really hope it fits!! I think it will be the perfect little skirt to jump around in with leggings and boots in the change of season that she’s about to experience.

Bows make the skirt bubble

The skirt sports cute little bow ties at the bottom which gives it its bouncy look.

And the pattern calls for french seams which I think really finish off this simple skirt beautifully.

and this is me making my oldest try it on so I felt like I was at least close to the right size seeing I fiddled with it so much. I actually think it should sit a little shorter so hopefully it’ll fit perfect!
