I made a skirt for my little niece, Lena, months ago when we made a trip to Pittsburgh to visit family. I thought it'd be so cute to make a matching one for Haley too, so instead of being a responsible adult and planning ahead, I waited until several days before we were going to leave to even start the thing.
I had plans to make one of Dana's Simple Skirts, which I've made several times with success, but then I got it in my head to attempt to make my own pattern. Not only that, but I decided to make a flat front skirt with exposed ruffles which meant drafting my own pattern, doing a lot of measuring, and of course lots and lots of hemming.
I really don't know what's wrong with me sometimes. I seem to make things harder than they have to be (don't tell my husband I admitted that in cyberspace.)
The skirt is kind of "bohemian-style," and I made cute little bow pockets and did some decorative piping on the waistband. They turned out really cute. I still don't know how I managed to finish both skirts in time, I like a zombie with a needle in my hand.
I had planned on doing a tutorial on this, but being my first attempt at a flat front skirt (and trying to do it myself without ever attempting anything like it before) I hope you'll excuse this crazy lady from posting one. Instead, I'll leave you with another cute Haley picture.
I hope you all enjoy your Labor Day weekend!
