This is my go-to gift for all of the 4 and 5-year-old birthday parties we’ve been going to this year (for girls, that is). I can whip one of these skirts out in a half hour and the variations are endless. And my daughter hasn’t outgrown a single one in the two years I’ve been making them for her – they last forever.
You may already be familiar with it – it’s the Oliver + S Lazy Days Skirt.
All you need is about a half yard of fabric (selvedge to selvedge), a few feet of ribbon (the above green ribbon was from a gift I received from Williams Sonoma), and a couple feet of elastic. I usually have all three on hand at any given time.
This is a Lazy Days Skirt in denim but with fancy appliques for my daughter’s 4th birthday:
And when it’s one of those weekends where you have three birthday parties in a row:
With matching barrettes for my nieces last Easter:
Did I mention that the possibilities are endless??
