The color choices I picked have a slight Ronald McDonald feel to them, but as long as she doesn't grow a big red afro, I think we're in the clear!
2 fat quarters (mostly solids for a more pazzow! effect)
1" wide elastic (length depends on your little one's tummy, I used 17" for my almost 1 year old)
Step 1: Cut your main fabric fat quarter into two 9"x21" rectangles.
Then cut your secondary fabric fat quarter into two strips, mine measured 3"x21". If you want a more pronounced trim at the bottom, make them more along the lines of 5"x21" or 7"x21" so on and so forth.
Iron the seam toward the trim edge and top stitch in place.
Now fold it over about 1 1/4" (it needs to be a wee bit bigger than your elastic) and iron. Then stitch in place leaving a 1 1/2" wide opening.
Pull the elastic all the way through and let the two ends meet up. Lay one end on top of the other 1/4" and stitch in place. Make sure you backstitch a bit so it's secure. Pull so that the elastic slips into the casing and then sew up the opening.
Distribute the gathers evenly across the skirt. You're all done!
