I have a birthday party to go along to this coming weekend, and it's fancy dress (for the kiddies thankfully - not for me)!
I bought the birthday girl some gorgeous red stockings from My Poppet last month, so I just wanted to make a little skirt that she could wear with them.
With exactly zero size 6 models on hand and available, I winged it, and then put out a call for help on twitter regarding the length (I wanted it to be just sitting at the knee).
Kate came to the rescue, as fortunately she had two little size 6 models playing in the yard.
I've forgotten to take photos of the side seams, but I did a lovely flat felled (at least I think that's what it's called) seam with two lines of red top stitiching down either side.
I think it's super cute, so I hope the birthday girl does too!
