Ottobre skirt

September 14, 2011

I have been wanting to make this skirt for a while and finally got around to starting it this week.  Many hours later, it is complete and pretty cute!  I had to adjust it a bit as the size that suited Isabella was still too big.  I also added a tie made from one of the frill fabrics.

Isabella loves to dance!  Her usual uniform is a pink tutu but I think I can persuade her to wear this skirt as it has good frills on it!

How's the pose?!!

Project details:
Fabric - red denim (an offcut from my sis), floral prints from my scrap box (lower frill is Sara Morgan Toy Box ... again!, can't remember where I got the upper frill fabric)
Pattern - Ottobre Spring 2011
Bits and bobs - 10 cm zip, button, interfacing for waistband

I'm sharing today at Kootoyoo.
