Free Girl’s Skirt Patterns to Sew

Sources for all the skirts can be found HERE.

When Michelle was a little girl, I could not get her to wear a dress or skirt. (Remember that family?) I’m not sure Michelle and I ever had an actual argument, but the closest we ever came is when I insisted she wore a dress to church on Easter Sunday when she was 10. On the way to receive communion, I could see she had put jeans on under her dress and as she walked along the rolled up pants legs fell down to her ankles. Even in high school, going to proms and homecomings, she would wear beautiful dresses, but under all of them she wore a pair of Umbros. I was shocked when she didn’t don a pair under her wedding gown. Ah, my girly girl 😉

Then comes Pixie and Fairy, her little girls. They, in turn, wanted no part of pants and shorts and refused to wear anything but skirts and dresses. And, can you believe it, they love pink! Okay… must admit I find the whole thing quite humorous. There seems to be some sort of poetic justice in this.

Anyway, very early on we started making skirts for the girls, because not only did they love skirts, they wanted them to be long, flowing and twirly. Skirts are quite easy to make, even for novice sewers, so we kept them amply supplied.

Today we are sharing a lovely selection of FREE skirt patterns, some from our site and some from around the web. Also, some of the patterns have directions for sizing them up for adults. (In case you are wondering… today, Michelle will occasionally wear a skirt, although pants are still her clothing of choice.)

If you have a wee girl in your life that loves skirts, I’m sure you’ll find something you can fall in love with in this collection. There’s even one with attached shorts which I’m sure Michelle would have approved of 😉

Knit Fabric Layered Skirt

Visible elastic gathered layered skirt. I’m sharing this one because it is made from a jersey knit and requires no hemming. Plus, I’m think this would be an excellent way to repurpose some of mom or dad’s old t-shirts~
