5 skirts

I have joined One Crafty Mumma's sew-along this week. She chose to make the lazy days skirt, which is offered as a free pattern by oliver + s. I'm sure that the last thing I need is something else to do, but yeah...I signed up. Here is my first skirt:


I've had this fabric for quite a while now and nothing in mind to do with it. The giant ric-rac is really what makes the skirt so cute.


I'd like to trim my whole world with this ric-rac.

The pattern is very simple. I've actually got skirt 2 finished and skirt 3 almost finished. You'll have to check in each day this week to see more!
You can also check out the oliver + s flickr pool to see skirts made by other participants of the sew-along.

Wilson didn't want to be left out of the photoshoot, so here he is with a giant pancake.


I'll have to find another fun skirt-portrait location for tomorrow!
