Pattern: Kwik Sew K4113 (View D: Skort)
Fabric used: Cotton Lycra Jersey
Size Made: XS
I spotted this great little pattern whilst looking for some gym clothes for my eldest daughter. A lot of the children's patterns have her in the largest size or she is slightly out of the range altogether. This caught my eye because the smallest size seemed to match her measurements and there are 4 more sizes to go, meaning it will last, and as a bonus.... it will fit me too!
I didn't have to adjust the length for her. The waistband is nice and deep and the elastic is concealed inside the top of the band making it soft and comfortable to wear.
There are 2 different styles for the skort. This one has a straighter skirt and side panels so you can contrast the fabrics. I really like the block of solid in between the front and back pieces. The other view is a faux wrap style which reminds me of a swim skirt.
Not forgetting of course, these great little shorts hidden underneath. Totally stitched into the waistband, perfect for active kids. I would also make up this pattern and forgo the skirt. The shorts on their own would be very useful.
