I’ve had this pattern for several years and always liked it’s childish looks. Now that I work in the children’s department of a library and the most perfect fabric came into my life, I had to make it.
After I got ‘help’ from my bad kitty
This is how it turned out:
I think it’s cute! One thing I didn’t realize about the pattern until after I had already cut it out is that the back is lapped, and therefore flaps open when I walk. 😮 I guess that’s why panties were included in the pattern! My fix was to wear another skirt I made last year under it. At some point in the future I’ll probably sew up the back seam, but for now, especially in chilly weather, the added layer is okay.
