Elena’s been insisting on on skirts and dresses for school so far this year. All her skirts from last year are getting a bit short for outside the house so I’ve been working on increasing her wardrobe.
This range of fabric’s so happy and bright, I just fell in love with it when I found it during Addicted to Fabric’s December sale. For $10 a meter you really can’t go wrong.
Elena measures for a size 2 for this pattern, but I’ve sewn size 3 so they’ll last that bit longer. I’ve used the size 2 elastic measurement. I figure I can always pop new elastic in at a later date if the waist band gets too snug.
Getting photos of this skirt on was a bit of a debacle. This was as good as it got. There are many attitudinal photos I won’t publish…I’m tempted though! Photos were cut short when Hugo emerged from the house with a punnet of cherry tomatoes – which had been safely in the fridge. We were all over it. I think we might give modelled shots a rest for a while.
This whole blogging thing’s meant to be fun for all of us, and I’m not going to push it for the sake of a good photograph. Doesn’t mean I won’t try to steal incidental pictures, though!
