BLOG SWAP with Naptime Crafters

Today's post is courtesy of Amy from Naptime Crafters...........

I'm super excited to be blog swapping with Sarah today!! Isn't her blog the greatest:)

Ok- let's get started!

Do you have a little girl whose dying to cheer on your team? Never fear- you can bust out this outfit in time for game day.

And you know she'll just love it:)


  • T-shirt

  • Team Fabric (I used a 42 x 9" piece. Little miss has a 19" waist, so use a little more than double your girly's waist measurement and then pick whatever length you want)

  • Double sided fusible web (optional)

1. Pleat your fabric pinning as you go. I didn't bother measuring the pleats and it turned out just fine.

2. Using a basting stitch, stitch all of your pleats into place

3. Pin your skirt right sides together and sew up the side seam- I only had one, but if you are making this in a bigger size you might have seams on each side instead of just the one in the back. Anyway make sure your pattern matches up (I may have goofed this up the first time around...)

4. Hem the bottom end by folding over twice and topstitching.

5. Ok- I accidently deleted a few pictures and then it was all put together and on little miss, so this will have to do. Sorry about the belly button:) Slip your skirt over a t-shirt (I trimmed a bit off the bottom), so that they are right sides together and then stitch down.

6. This part is totally optional. I cut a little logo out of the fabric and then ironed it down with my double-sided fusible web. I didn't even stitch it down since this outfit probably won't be worn super often. I think it adds a nice little touch without too much more work:

Ta-Dah. Go cheer on your team!

Don't you love all those darling pleats?

I think she loves them too:)

Happy game day! I'd love to see pics. of your finished outfits - send them to naptimecrafters{at}gmail{dot}com and I'll show them off for you:)


How cute is that?! Go on and check out her fun blog!

Thanks Amy! :)


  1. So sweet! I am thinking that the belly button is cute too! I will make my great nieces one with some good old Mizzou fabric!!

  2. What a cute project! I think we need a few of those around here.

  3. This is adorable!! And of course I like it even better because BYU happens to be my favorite team. :)

  4. Go Cougars! Super cute! My son has been begging me to make him a BYU shirt :) That's my boy!

  5. I am totally making this tomorrow. I bought all the stuff today! HOoray! Quick question--how old is your daughter?
