I was just speaking about my four year old niece and the skirt I made for her this week. Here is how I made it and why ...
A bright yellow cotton fabric was what I had. And little bit of polka dotted black fabric left over from the top I made. I wanted a A-line shape and a drawstring version ..here is what I wanted it to look like.
I drafted the pattern for the skirt myself . And the idea of having plaint tucks at the bottom is from The Sewing Book by Alison Smith. I made it for the fab folds contest at the ricochetandaway blog by Rikka.These contests are for fun, we can meet some exciting bloggers too. This time the theme was to sew anything which features pleats , pin tucks or smocking. Thanks to Rikka and now my niece got a good little skirt to wear.
I love the folds it looks fab don't they ? This book has got truckloads of photos and information. Its is a keeper must say.When I feel 'I do not know that technique' I flip the pages of this book to find it there.
I added two self covered buttons at the middle band. And made two pockets.I am a fan of pockets , I love a little bit of pockets in all my clothes LOL..
Some snaps of her wearing it. No time to adjust the camera settings when kids are our models. Its for just a minute or so that they pose and have to click before they run away.. So you can see why the quality of these two pics are not so good heh he..
By the way don't ask me why I call it Yummy Yellow Skirt.. That was the first word that randomly occurred to my mind when I saw the finished skirt;)
