Lazy Days Skirt

One of the easiest patterns I know of, that is perfect for beginners, is the Oliver +S Lazy Days skirt.

It’s a free pattern with no seam finishing – which is my least favourite sewing task.

The easiest pattern I’ve ever sewn: the Lazy Days Skirt by Oliver + S.

I don’t have many construction photos of this skirt because I made this years ago. This is actually the third kid to wear this skirt. Yay, for hand-me-downs!

This is the size 7/8 in a watermelon colour theme.

This is the second time I’ve used this pattern. Last time I did this in a winter dress with long sleeves and using french terry. This time I used cotton jersey and made the sleeveless version.

This is the size 5/6 in red and turquoise.

The fabric is from l’Oiseau Fabrics. I used their jersey for the dresses and ribbing for trim. All are really high quality and perfectly suited for the pattern.

This is the size 3/4 in turquoise and purple.

The pattern combines two sizes in one, and this works great for my kids, since they can wear the dress for a long time. I didn’t make any alterations at all.
