Cut your fabric according to the sizes below. ALL PIECES ARE CUT WITH THE CENTER ON THE FOLD. WHEN YOU UNFOLD YOUR PIECES, THEY SHOULD BE TWICE AS WIDE AS STATED. The pieces in this photo are still folded. You should have two pieces for each part: skirt, casing, hem. The waist tie is made the same for each size. Of course, you can always make your skirt longer or shorter to suit your own needs.

This pattern uses European sizing (similar to Hanna Andersson). To ensure a good fit, you need to know the child's height.

90cm (34-38 inches): 2 skirts on the fold (19"w x 9"l each or 38" wide by 9" long each when unfolded)
100cm (38-42 inches): 2 skirts on the fold (19.5"w x 10.5"l each or 39" wide by 10.5" long each when unfolded)
110cm (42-46 inches): 2 skirts on the fold (20"w x 12"l each or 40" wide by 12" long each when unfolded)
120cm (46-50 inches): 2 skirts on the fold (21"w x 13.5"l each or 42" wide by 13.5" long each when unfolded)
130cm (50-54 inches): 2 skirts on the fold (21.75"w x 15"l each or 43.5" wide by 15" long each when unfolded)

For the waistband, cut 2 pieces on the fold 2.5" long by the width of your skirt (e.g., size 120 = 21"w x 2.5"l)

For the hem band, cut 2 pieces on the fold 3.5" long by the width of your skirt (e.g., size 120 = 21"w x 3.5"l)

For the waist tie, cut 1 piece on the fold 1.5 " long by the width of your fabric (42-44") and 1 piece (not on the fold) 1.5" long by 12" wide. Or you can use ribbon - approximately 65" in length.

OK - let's start. All seam allowances are 1/2 inch unless stated otherwise!
