I’m all about easy. When I see most DIY links on Pinterest, I’m often overcome with…

WTF? Who are these people?! I can barely take a dump by myself, let alone sew a rainbow made from unicorn tears.

So here is my DIY No-Sew for Moms with as little time as they have patience. I found this mustache print fabric at my local Hobby Lobby. It is pictured with a tulle skirt underneath, however it looks cute without it too.

Materials: 1 yard fabric, sewing shears, Velcro, hot glue gun.

I made a pattern first on thicker extra fabric before tracing it onto the mustache fabric.

1. Measure your little ones waist. Just like any other circle skirt, this will become the inner circle in your pattern. 2. Measure your little for length from waist to knee. This will become your guide to your outer circle in your pattern.

Here is a really lame diagram for you to help visualize my ramblings:

3.  Take the waist measurement and draw a circle of measured amount.  4. Use the inseam number as a guide to guide you to draw the next outer circle as pictured above. Once I have my doughnut shape on my pattern I cut out the middle circle and around the outer circle. 5. I need to create a slit for Ruby to get in and out, so once my pieces were attached, I determined where the back of the skirt would be, and cut the fabric in half. 6. Fabric will need a slight overlap to hide Velcro fasteners, so over lap fabric about one inch and hot glue the bottom half. 7. Hot glue your Velcro tabs along the second half of the skirt. I bought stick on Velcro squares, but I secured it with extra hot glue.

Yes, this is probably the laziest way to make your child a skirt. No, it wont last longer than a few wears.

If you are looking for that kind of DIY, you are probably asking the wrong lady.

However, it is great for a last minute skirt!
