I had another dress in mind for it, but in the end this seemed easier and more economical, because she will be able to wear it for a few summers I hope. Eventually it can be a top.
It turned out very well, though I had a tough time with my machine last night for some reason. The shirring and elastic thread didn't sit well with it, I guess. The pattern is here.
These little skirts are sure to grow in number as they are insanely easy. They are the Oliver & S Lazy Days Skirt pattern minus the ribbon hem to be found here. And again, if they don't become too short they may last a few seasons.
My creative energy sure comes in fits and starts. I can do nothing for months, and then all of a sudden I will sew for three days straight. Now I'm tired. I'd better go lie down.
