There’s no coincidence that this darling skirt shares a name with my daughter’s favorite little “Poppy” troll; every time I see her skirt, I think of every pleat as the trolls, banded together to make great change. I’ll most certainly clothe my daughter in that metaphor daily!
This sweet pattern by Petite Stitchery & Co. features beautiful box pleats and the option to use an invisible zipper or an elastic waistband. I love the look of the flat waistband on my daughter, so I chose the zipper! Every time she puts it on, she comments on the zipper and how she feels fancy (….goal to make our littles feel like princesses…check!).
Let’s talk about this full outfit and sizing!
The top is the Sapphire Layering Top. I used the flutters for the tank version, and rather than gathering them and adding a band, I turned the flutters into sleeves by clipping the ends/tails off. It pairs perfectly with this skirt and has quickly become my favorite set on my daughter.
The gorgeous watercolor floral fabric is a new CLUB line from Raspberry Creek Fabrics.

You’ll definitely want to measure and go by the chart. This holds true with every pattern but especially with the skirt (for the waist size). My daughter’s waist is 19.5” or so, and I cut my waistband at 20” (2” less than the size 2 waistband, according to the chart); this worked perfectly along with a size “4” length. I didn’t have to make any adjustments, and the instructions were very clear.
I’ve already sewn another Poppy Skirt/Sapphire Flutter set because I love them so.
