the mother and daughter skirt

This was the fabric I bought from malin last week

I decided to make 2 skirts from this fabric and it shall be a simple elastic band skirt. I took an old 10year skirt and cut to dimension. ok I added a few cm as I have gained weight.

i also measured dd and she told me she prefer a low waist skirt.

sewing straight lines are a breeze! and in 1 hour both are done!!

it went well with her pink zoo top

I have yet to pose with mine cos I was thinking I will wear a light yellow top and a newly bought yellow leather shoes from ck tangs (waiting for delivery!)

needless to say it was a fruitful weekend and I have utilized the last bit of the pink Russian doll fabric to make a cute little skirt for A, a colleague’s lovely 22 month old daughter.
