So usually the Boo! skater dress is my go to knit pattern for little girls, but this weekend I needed a size 1/18m quick sew for a 1st birthday present so I had to get creative! I’ve tried sizing the skater dress down previously and I didn’t love it so this time I used the Flosstyle Super Suit pattern as a base and hacked it a teeny bit 😀
I started with the super suit pattern and measured 11.5cm down from the underarm and then drew a line straight across on both front and back pieces:
This is your bodice 🙂
size 2 = 12cm
size 18m = 11.5cm
size 1 = 11cm
size 0 = 10.5cm
size 00 = 10cm
size 000 = 9.5cm
size 0000 = 9cm
size 00000 = 8.5cm
Next I cut my sleeves and neck band and was ready to go! Following the pattern for the sleeved (or sleeveless) option piece your bodice together. (I added 5/8″ onto the sleeve to hem them rather than binding them)
Print your circle skirt pattern and cut 2 on the fold.
Lay on top of each other right sides facing and sew the side seams:
With your skirt wrong side out and bodice right side out slip your bodice into your skirt and sew your waist seam:
Finally hem your skirt by folding up 1″ and using stretch stich/twin needles or coverstitch
Such a quick sew!
