This was a one quick project for my daughter. I found a small remnant piece of this lovely bright floral cotton and I immediately saw it as a spring skirt. I had the lovely Hazel skirt pattern that I used to make pinafores for my daughter and her friend. This time I decided to make just a skirt version.
It did not take more than an hour to finish this make after the kids had gone to bed for the night! All the patterns were rectangles so they were quick to cut and sew together. Some gathering at the waist, an elastic band, a little topstitching to keep the elastic band in place and I was done! I left the skirt to wait for my daughter to wake up to surprise her.
S likes her new Hazel skirt and now that the weather has warmed up, wears it to school. Due to the elasticated waist, the skirt is comfortable to wear. I think it looks very nice with the Ottobre design ruffle top I made S last summer.
This is all for now. I am in a process of making two dresses, a skirt and a pair of jeans, so there is more exciting new makes coming soon! Happy sewing!
