Molly is a comfortable and play-friendly skirt for big and small ones. From size 80 and up the skirt can be sewn with, or without, practical in-seam pockets. Molly is a short skirt that ends just above the knees.
The waist has ruffle, a string and elastic. You could let the elastic be not too tight and instead use the string to adjust the fit. This makes Molly a perfect “grow with me” skirt that the child can use for a long time.
All steps of making this skirt, including sewing the pockets and attaching the eyelets, are thoroughly described in the booklet, so that creating can be fun and relaxing.

YOU WILL NEED:
Fabric: Light to medium weight fabrics, knit or woven. For the best result, use the same fabric for the cuff as for the main skirt.
Elastic, 10-18 mm wide (3/8”-3/4”). (The length is specified in the fabric requirements chart below).
Fusible interfacing, non-stretch: a small piece, approx. 2,5x5 cm (1x2”).
2 eyelets, 8 mm wide. Or you could sew buttonholes.
This is an estimate of how much fabric you’ll need, based on 160 cm (63”) wide fabric that has not been prewashed.
The length of the elastic is approximate. The amount of stretch can vary greatly in elastics and therefore the length recommended here can become too long, or too short.
The skirt Molly sits comfortably around the waist, and you can adjust the tightness with the waist string. Choose a size based on your child’s height. For example, if the child is 98 cm tall, choose the size 98. If the child is between sizes, choose the larger size.
If you know that the child is slim you can size down 1-2 sizes on the width of the skirt, otherwise the waist can become a bit bulky with too much fabric.
