Another great looking bag! I love the blue with the black and white. I have said it before and I will say it again, you have a grat eye for fabric! I have been (sigh) hemming men's trousers by hand. Not my favorite thing to do, but it has to be done. Can't wait to hear your big news!


I also can't wait to hear your big news...I have a question though. What are the measurements for your "tiny" skirt. I have done a few one year + skirts but never a newborn. I have all these friends who are having baby girls. Can you help me out?


Hi Joy,
Well, to be honest, I never make newborn size skirts because 1) they grow out of them too quickly and most people give newborn-sized clothes so babies have a ton of clothes at first and then not much to wear beyond 9 months and 2) usually brand-new babies have their legs tucked up toward their chest and the skirt is never really seen anyway.
The baby skirts I make for baby showers are at about the 9 month size, give or take a few months. They are not too long because babies are crawling and a long skirt would get in the way. Here are typical measurements (cutting dimensions):

waistband = 3" x 22"
main skirt fabric = 5.5" x 42"
contrast fabric = 1.5" to 2" x 42"

This yields a skirt about 8 or 9 inches long and very full. For a less full skirt, reduce the 42" to 30" to 35".
Hope this helps!
