Making a No-Sew Bandana Skirt and Top

August 29, 2005

No-Sew Bandana Skirt and TopWhat do you get when you hand four bandanas to a crafty kid with her own sense of style? The result just might be this very cute two piece bandana halter top and skirt. The little set is not quite no-sew, but the few stitches that you take are so simple that it's hardly sewing at all.

It looks especially cute in traditional bandana paisley print in bright tropical colors. Try mixing and matching colors for the bandana top - bright fuchsia with lime green or yellow? Red and blue? Black and red?

Materials

Instructions

For the top:

  1. Fold two of the bandanas in half diagonally.
  2. Holding them up to your body to adjust measurements right, position triangle's point about 4 inches below each shoulder.
  3. Tie the two bottom points together at the front even with the breastbone.
  4. Fold down the triangle point on one side to the inside of the top. Using the needle and thread, tack the point of the triangle down to form a 'channel' to run the ribbon through.
  5. Repeat with other side of bandana shirt.
  6. Cut ribbon to 1 yard lengths. Run 1 piece through the channel formed by sewing the bandana points down, bringing the ends together at the top. Knot ribbon together just above the fabric to keep ribbon in place.

Variations:

For the skirt:
