Toddler Maxi Skirt

I had never really considered buying or sewing a maxi anything for Nat before because she has always been too little and maxi skirts seem so “older kid” to me.

When I was browsing Call Ajare’s new Paneled Sunsuit Pattern and deciding what to sew for her tour, I decided to finally give it go. Nat is not so little anymore after all (sniff).

I’m glad I did, because it’s adorable! …and it’s great for Fall and beyond.

It’s especially cute in this floral knit from Girl Charlee. I got it a while ago, so I don’t see it in the shop anymore, but THIS knit is close.

Natalie loves it’s swishability. :)

…And the pockets! Her hands always found their way to the pockets, even when the gummy bears, that I stashed in there, ran out. ;)

I’m the same way. I love me a skirt or dress with some pockets.

If you can believe it, this is only one of the TEN views in the Paneled Sunsuit pattern. There’s a tank top, pant romper, shorts romper, short skirt, maxi skirt, maxi dress, short dress…you get the idea. AND…if you want to add sleeves there’s a free complementary download for that! AND… it’s for sizes NB to 12 girls.

Phew!

It’s a great staple pattern to add to your collection. This maxi skirt was designed with just the right amount of flair and length. It drapes beautifully and is long enough to fit Nat for the year. I don’t know if you can tell, but she is actually wearing it rolled up once at the waistband, so there’s definitely room to grow. Even then, I wouldn’t be opposed to her wearing it as a midi skirt either. ha!

Tip: Because there are SO many views, the pattern layout graphic, toward the beginning of the pattern file, is your friend. It helps you see which pages to print, which can feel like a bit of a puzzle. While in print preview mode, filter through which of the large gray pattern numbers match with which actual page numbers, and you’re gold!

For links for where to buy, pattern deets, and for the free sleeve download, check out Call Ajaire’s shop page.

    I adore this maxi skirt on her! I had never though of maxi length for my then-three-year-old, but she insisted on a “princess” skirt so I obliged. It quickly became my favorite :) Thanks for much for being on the tour! The style of this is SO GOOD.
