Sunny skirts

Sunny weather requires twirly skirts! I made this sunny yellow skirt for S to wear with the polkadot pinafore. I did not use any pattern, just folded two layers of cotton on a waistband and added an elastic band to fit S.


The next skirt I made to use up left-over fabric from other projects. I used pattern from Ottobre 1/2013 called “No U Turn” as a basis. The smallest size of 122 cm was of course quite big but a tighter elastic band fixed it. I also added some lace to add some extra girliness.


The hat in the picture, however, was a bit sad story. I really love the design of the Downtown Hat by Heidi & Finn. However, S complained that the hat was too small and kept creeping upwards until it fell off. I promised to make another one and we gave the hat away to a smaller girl. Now I only have to find similar kind of jersey somewhere but so far my attempts have been unsuccessful.


I am a mother of two. I sew, knit and create and blog about it.
