The sunshine seemed to bless.
The air was a caress.
~John Greenleaf Whittier
My girls love little summer skirts. Issa brought one home from New Zealand, with big pockets on the sides that was precious. Mandy and I went to my stash, found a pretty little floral print, and I got my tape measure. I measured the skirt in as many places as I could... around the bottom of the hem, from the waistband to the hem, the length and width of the pocket panels, and the length of the fold inside the skirt. It was really not to difficult to do, and I couldn't wait to begin.
I am going to make this skirt again, with one significant change. I got a little bit lazy with the trim on the hem. I thought since there were no curves, just straight seams, that I would not need bias strips; that I could use straight strips of the complimenting turquoise mini check as a trim along the hem of the skirt. Au contraire! Look at all the waves along the stitching. I can press them out, but the next skirt will have bias strips as the trim.
