Child’s Poodle Skirt Tutorial

on April 26, 2012

I’ve been wanting to make Linnaea a poodle skirt for a while now– simply because a 1 year old in a poodle skirt is too stinkin’ cute! I couldn’t find an online tutorial out there, and didn’t want to spend the money on a pattern for such a simple skirt, so I had to get thinking…. I absolutely LOVE this circle skirt tutorial by Dana Made It, and it dawned on me that that’s pretty much what a poodle skirt is- a circle. Now, using this pattern, the skirt comes to the knee. So, all we have to do it add a couple inches in length (measure the leg to where you’d like the skirt to end, and use that as the length measurement.) Anyways, here’s how I did it:

To start, as I said before, I used the pattern from Dana Made It, and simply add a couple to the length. To make this skirt, I used felt. The beauty of felt is-- NO HEMMING! How great is that! It doesn't fray, so no need for hems.

Again, following Dana's tutorial, I sewed the exposed elastic along the top. We're almost done already!

Here's the iron-on poodle applique. I ordered online from Joann's. All we need to do is apply it!

Voila! We have a poodle!

Here's the finished product. How easy was that!

Adorable!
