I decided to have a go at something new (to me) so I made a ruffle for the bottom. It is rare that I sew with a pattern. I tend to work things out as I go, mostly because I am too impatient to follow a pattern. There was a bit of quick unpicking. Pfftt! It's never 'quick' is it?! Anyway an hour and half later I had a completed skirt. Hooray!
Part way through it became evident there was too much fabric in it for Lulu. I mentioned it was going to be too big for her and thank goodness she said 'we'll have to give it to Bella cos she's big'. So Miss 10 has a new skirt waiting on her bed to try on after school. Funny thing is she's not so much of a pink floral type. I predict she will team it with her red converse boots to make it more her.
So now I am off to do some painting and maybe tonight I will sew another, much smaller skirt!
