This year, I really am trying to focus on wardrobe needs.
Emily fluctuates between wanting to dress “fancy” for school (she has a fancy friend there…)
and wanting to just wear jeans/leggings and t-shirts.
So this week, I made her some practical charcoal gray leggings using the Izzy & Ivy pattern,
(they turned out awesome!)
and came up with this (fancy-ish) skirt!
It is a double layered confection…I used a solid and a striped jersey from my stash.
Emily helped pick out the color combination.
The design is loosely based on my Ice Cream Social Skirt, but this version is only a half-circle skirt.
Two layers of scallop trim at the hem were the icing on the cake, and finished it off perfectly!
