Another tutorial today of a toddler wrap around skirt. It has a rick-rack bottom hem and three buttons down the front
Step One: cut your fabric approximately 9 inches tall and 25 inches long. I ended up piecing two together with the pieced seam in the back. I used a brown/greenish corduroy (left over scraps from my son's TOOL BELT). I did all of my stitching in light pink thread and had decorative button hole covers and buttons in light pink to go with.
Step Two: Iron top and bottom a quarter inch down and then roll again and iron loose end under. Pin in place.
|Top and bottom seams ironed and pinned. 1/4 plus a 1/4 turn to hide loose ends inside.|

|Finished sewing my bottom hem. See the stitches right down the middle.|
|These were the buttons with their awesome holes I cut off of an old shirt that was getting worn out.|
|20 minutes of ripping and I had the holes off of the shirt fabric.|
|Figuring out where I wanted them|
|All three button holes sewn on, ripped open and ready for buttons.|
|If your button holes are open you can mark right through to the other side for the buttons.|
