This was a pretty simple skirt to make. A large floral pattern is a must. It still calls for a hidden zipper, but other than that, the construction was quite fun, I think mostly do to the rick rack. I don't use that very often, and of course on this pattern, it really makes the skirt. It was tough deciding what color to use.
Monkey Pants used to be a skirts only girl, then a leggings only girl, and now a shorts only girl. But she will make an exception here and there. This pose was quite unexpected.
I didn't make the top so we had to make do with this plain, boring white t-shirt for the photos. I also didn't have the yardage called for the width of skirt and didn't want to cut into a whole new yard of the fabric so it is slightly less full than it should be. I didn't want to have side seams interrupting the floral print either. This is probably the "cutest" thing in her wardrobe right now.
Loved this when she wore it to a symphony in the park with the cabled taupe sweater.
