This summer might just be the Summer of the Skirt since I can't seem to stop making them!
The dropped waist style sews up in an afternoon. An elastic waist band means no zippers and an easy fit. I even cut the skirt out using my acrylic ruler and a rotary cutter since all of the pieces are rectangles!
The large bow is just pinned on so it can be removed for washing or for wearing the skirt with a longer shirt. Adding a label to the back is handy for the girls when dressing themselves.
The pattern includes a double ruffle version which we will have to try next. This pattern is definitely a keeper!
The fabric for Jane's pink skirt is Briar Rose by Heather Ross. She loves the little bees wearing bonnets!
Lula's skirt features an Art Gallery fabric called Sweet as Honey. Aren't the little deer adorable!
Oh, how I love sewing for little girls. Sigh!
P.S. It started raining during our photo shoot but the models, though made of sugar, didn't melt!
