Oliver + S. It is the lazy days skirt pattern and it uses a super great technique at the bottom edge of the skirt. Tomorrow I will share in pictures how to add the bottom hem with bias binding and you will see what I am talking about, but it is easy peasy! This skirt is just a basic elastic waist skirt that is sewn from selvage to selvage and can be made into any length/size, which is great.
In sewing, I am constantly challenging myself to come up with cute stuff using what I already have in my fabric stash that I inherited from those before me. I have not bought fabric hardly at all since I began this site, because I want to use up what's in my closet first, even though it is pretty tempting with all that's out there!
I had this plain cotton purple and a coordinating lilac purple gingham check that I knew I wanted to use. The night before these two sister's birthdays, I asked another neighbor girl if she had a gift for either of them and she said she didn't, so knowing how much all of them liked my Colorful Felt Bib Necklace, I asked her if she wanted to craft and make some necklaces for them. She came up with a purple and hot pink color scheme for Myrissa and so that was the main inspiration for the skirt. I made it to match and I love how the hot pink bias binding (already in my stash, too) coordinated and made this skirt pop!
