Quick and simple to make, Juniper is a versatile pattern for little girls. Sewn in cotton it’s great for Summer, but worn with warm tights it’s equally perfect for cooler Winter days.
The Juniper Skirt has two variations, which make it either a super quick make, or a fun sew with a few more details. Version A is a simple knee length gathered skirt with an elasticated waistband. Version B has a flat front waistband with comfy elastic at the back and features a smooth top yoke and a full gathered skirt attached.
Who are Poppy and Jazz? Named after Lisa’s dog Poppy and her young daughter Jasmine, Poppy & Jazz patterns are designed for babies and children from birth to 6 years. After Jasmine spent her first year in the sweetest handmade clothes, Lisa couldn’t resist building on her range of popular sewing patterns, and Poppy & Jazz was born!
Sewing Level The Juniper Skirt is a beginner level sewing pattern. Variation A is suitable for complete beginners, whilst we recommend you have some experience of dressmaking before making Variation B as this is a little more complicated.
Fabric Suggestions Nice and easy to sew, the Juniper Skirt works best in light to medium weight fabrics such as cotton poplin, lawn, denim, chambray, linen, quilting cottons and corduroy.
Fabric Requirements The Juniper Skirt is designed for children from 18 months to 6 years. See the chart for details on fabric requirements.
Like all our patterns, the sizes are nested to make it easier to grade between the sizes, depending on the child’s measurements.
