MaterialsCotton or corduroy (I used a piece 35"x 24" for a 24" waist on a 5yr old)
Old stretchy T-shirt (I used a size 0 bonds) Long sleeves if you want to make matching legwarmers
Cut the t-shirt along the red lines
You can leave the arms or hem and you have your legwarmers (worn with with the cuff at the top)
Take the main material and with right sides facing sew along the open side
As this waistband is made to fold down, take the t-shirt and with the main skirt peice inside out, have the t-shirt with it's wrong wide facing the skirt. Pin at each seam and join making sure to stretch the waistband as you go.
Turn right way out and hem the bottom
Ellie also wanted a pocket so I popped that on by folding and seaming the top and then sating stitching it on.
The complete outfit, I would normally iron while I sew but miss destructo was about and it was safer not to.
