When Jane woke up Friday morning, she was thrilled to have a new skirt to wear to school. She has already told me to make sure and get it washed and back in her closet for "Patrick's Day" next week (They are 6 now! When will they be able to remember that it's St. Patrick's day). She and sister Ruby say they both want four leaf clover shirts to wear on the big day. I'm not sure that's a worthwhile use of a white t-shirt. It's an awfully short lived holiday, don't you agree??
Back to the skirt. Here it is:
Of course I lengthened it. When in kindergarten, I'm not sure a mini-skirt is necessary. Not that it's terribly mini, but with all that sitting criss-cross-apple-sauce, and all, I just decided a few extra inches and capri length leggings underneath are more realistic for school day wear.
It's a darling skirt. I loved making it. Loved that it was done in under two hours. Loved how it looked on Jane. I'll definitely be making more soon. Thanks for the hot tip Liz. Another great pattern discovered!
What about the fabric you ask? Well, that's a little piece of something I picked up when Liz and I were in Seoul together last year. So happy to have found the perfect project to use with it. I went back and forth on the pockets. Didn't know if they should be contrasting or the same. In the end, I could not resist that yellow stripe. I *heart* it so.
