Shorts Are Soooo Yesterday!

On Monday I made Autumn a skirt.  I think it turned out pretty cute if I do say so myself.

The skirt's owner, in shoes of her choosing :)
Such a simple and quick skirt.  It took me about 40 minutes from start to finish and that included picking out the fabric!

I love the double stitched waist band, even if no one will ever
see it :)
Surprisingly, she loved it and was excited about it.  As a  tomboy, skirts aren't high on the priority list, but when she realized she could throw on a pair of tennis shoes or flip flops with it, it became freeing as a great summer alternative to shorts.

To match the waist band, the hem also has a double stitch.  I thought it was too cute.  Oddly enough, my camera didn't capture the colors very well, but this is a better match to the true colors of dark lavender with lime green dots!

My sweet model was excited to show it off, and I'm excited that she loves it so much.  Now, keep your fingers crossed that she'll ACTUALLY wear it :)
