When Spring rolls around you'll want to have adorable outfits for your little girl. The Little Girl Bubble Dress by Jessica Gerblick is perfect for family gatherings or picnics. Let this free sewing tutorial show you how to make a dress they'll love to wear.
Let’s Get Cutting:
Cut (1) of your Length x 44" W fabric.
For the Width, I simply cut a long strip, as we will be gathering the waist around the top of the dress...mine happens to be 36”W x 22” Long.
Let’s Get Sewing:
Sew a line of gathering stitches along the top edge of the skirt, and another line of gathering stitches approx. 2" beneath that row.
Gather the top line of stitches until the skirt is the same width around as the shirt.
With fabric wrong side out, slip around shirt upside down with skirt seam in the back center, and with right sides together, pin to shirt. Sew. See Photo:
It helps to use zig zag stitches when sewing cotton to knit for a little extra stretchy room.
The top of your skirt is now in place. To turn this into a bubble skirt, we will now be doing the following...
Sew a line of gathering stitches along the bottom edge of the skirt.
Now lift the entire skirt up towards the neckline, so that the bottom of the shirt is showing.
Take the bottom skirt hem and pin to the shirt. This will result in enclosing the raw gathered edges of the hem. (You can alter your skirt length here by determining where you pin the bottom of the skirt to the shirt.)
