Keep in mind the top of the crib skirt won’t be seen. I cut the top of the skirt 53 inches by 28 inches. This gives me an inch clearance for the seam.

Cut the color fabric in three panels each 15 inches tall.

One panel 53 inches long and two panels 28 inches long.

Now attach the right sides together of the white fabric and blue fabric starting with the two end panels. The “right side” is the side of the fabric that will be facing out or the pattern side. You want to sew with that side facing down.
