Making summer skirts

I love making skirts for little girls. So simple and fun and pretty.
I've been making lots of little summer skirts of late, and I don't think I'm quite done yet, I think Isla might need a couple more, at least.

It all started with a little friend of ours who turned one. I decided to make her a wee flowery skirt with a matching headband.

It was so cute and pretty that I decided Isla needed one too, minus the headband, as we all know she has no hair to hold back, yet, she's working on it, slowly.

And then, the same week, I sold this cheerful yellow skirt, which I'd made a while ago, to a sweet lady for her little girl who has decided that trousers will just not do.

But of course one skirt would certainly not be enough for an anti-trouser wearer to get through the week.

So she picked out some more fabrics.

And I made three more pretty little skirts.

So there you have it, six pretty little skirts in total.
... and two more to come, at least.

I am the mum of the wee girl that won't wear skirts and was lucky enough to find Hanna to make us some gorgeous ones. I wanted to take the time to tell you all that Hanna is an amazingly talented mum who has made my life easier in the mornings to get my wee girl dressed. Thank you so much Hanna we LOVE all the skirts and the only problem we have now is what one will Poppy-Isabella wear!!! Take care and thanks again xx

Oh how darling! I love all of them, especially the yellow. I have two fabrics that Faith has picked out for skirts. Maybe you will inspire me to get on with the project! She would be grateful . . .
