Description

The Daniella skirt pattern will teach you how to make a super easy & super cute skirt. It’s very very full so it has twirlability! Perfect for a girl, baby or toddler. You can either print the pattern pieces, or use cutting charts. If you use the cutting charts, you can cut straight from the measurements (no printing). It includes a back-to-school suitable knee-length option. Plus a just-above-the-knee length option. So you’ll be able to make one to suit whatever the occasion! There’s also a less full option if you prefer.

All the seams are cleverly designed to be self-finishing. This means all the raw edges are neatly tucked away out of sight. No overlocking or serging required… and no fraying fabric for little hands to pick at! That said serger tips are included for when and where to use it if you wish to.

Note – This pattern used to be called the Easy Peasy Skirt pattern. We’ve updated and renamed it.

Gallery – See images from Instagram below. Or view our full tester gallery on our Facebook Page here.

Sizes – Pattern includes Child sizes newborn to 12 years. See the size chart in the gallery above.

Options – back to school knee length or just-above-the-knee length

Fabrics – This pattern is suitable for woven fabrics only. See the fabric requirements in the gallery above for yardage. A serger/ overlocker is optional but NOT required.

Format – This trim-free pattern is a downloadable PDF and comes in A4 or US letter printable sizes. An A0 format (pattern pieces only) is also included should you wish to have your pattern printed professionally. PDF Layers allow you to select and print only the size/s you want.

    There shouldn’t be any fraying like inside most homemade garments. Thank you for finding a way to enclose all the raw edges. And the twirl factor is nice as it doesn’t come up high enough to show underwear like a circle skirt does. It is truly an easy peasy pattern. The hardest part of all was ruffling the skirt.

    BUY IT! Super simple instructions that are easy to follow. Skirt is the perfect length for little girls. It has the feel of a circle skirt with out wasting fabric because the width for the skirt makes it twirly!

    If you want to learn to sew this pattern is where you should start since it’s so easy peasy.

    I liked the way the waistband & skirt come together. I haven’t done that technique before and it went very quickly. It comes together very quickly and the result is clean lines and great fit. Also, you get a cutting chart so you don’t have to print & save paper!!

    It is a really good pattern. Super easy, and so cute. You can sew up a bunch of these cute skirts and headbands, and throw them with some t shirts, for super cute summer outfits.

    So easy. Fast to cut and sew. Made me realize I can do more sewing than I thought when the patterns are done right. I did the two lines for gathering (which I rarely do) and realized the gathers look much nicer when you do it that way. (This is) perfect for anyone – great for a beginner sewist. (Also a) perfect skirt for girls who like to spin/twirl.

    Pattern was easy to print out and assemble. The instructions were clear. My daughter loves to twirl in her “princess skirt.”

    This skirt was SUPER easy. I was able to cut and sew it in less than thirty minutes. It’s so flowy and twirly. I like that it has French seamed pockets AND the side seams are also French seamed. I foresee this skirt being a staple in my daughter’s wardrobe.

    I made the Easy Peasy skirt for my daughter and it was just that! Easy Peasy! It’s super cute, very full and looks great in Summer or layered in Winter. This is a seriously fast sew with literally a hem, side seams and waistband. I love that the waistband elastic is 1.5″ also. Helps keep it up on those toddler tummies and is super comfortable.

    The Daniella skirt is the perfect project for any beginner! Straight forward and beautifully illustrated instructions make this sew quick, and easy. It was the first pattern my 8 year old worked with (under supervision) and she created a beautiful piece that she LOVES!

    Lovely skirt to make. The added sash ties and pockets make a great addition and take this skirt to another level. Would look stunning with a lace or chiffon overlay to really dress it up. This will be a staple for my daughters wardrobe

    This skirt is a very quick sew! A great pattern for beginner and advanced sewists alike. While the pattern is simple, the end product is beautiful. Every seam is finished beautifully and your recipient will want to twirl for hours on end!

    Daniella is a super quick twirly gathered skirt perfect for beginners or anyone with a little girl to dress. It is a wardrobe basic that allows you to show off gorgeous fabrics without needing a lot of fuss.

    This is a lovely and relatively easy sew. I’m so glad I did! The skirt on my little girl has a perfect “poofiness” and twirlability using simple quilting cotton. I finished with a rolled hem in a contrasting color for added decoration. There will be many more of these in my little girl’s closet soon!
