I got this skirt finished last night, in time to wear it today for my niece’s First Holy Communion celebrations.
I have many nieces* (well, eight- that’s really rather a lot from three sisters). Apart from the photobomber, the little girl in blue behind me is another one of ours. She’s a 3 year old girl with a very definite sense of style- she was wearing two necklaces, and at least six bracelets, despite her mother’s suggestion that she really didn’t need to wear *quite* that many. Oh no, she’s firmly in the More is More Camp.
My favourite thing about this?
Apart from the perfectly reasonable pride in making something wearable- I love this fabric. It’s fairly thick cotton, with a slight element of stretch, and it’s got a hefty weight to it. It falls beautifully, even though I’m not wearing a petticoat with it. One of these days I might make myself a frilly petticoat to see how much fouffe I can get into this, but it doesn’t actually need it.
It also performed brilliantly in the comfort test- one huge roast dinner later, I am still happy to be wearing this.
