I've had this wonderful Underwater Sisters fabric by Heather Ross for a while now. It's been waiting for just the right project. The girls have been getting up early ever since the time change. Early morning often makes for good sewing in our house. The girls seem to entertain themselves well first thing in the morning. So I whipped up this skirt. I used two layers of fabric because I wanted it to be a little warmer and it gave a nice little touch of color at the bottom. It has a simple elastic waist. I've even made the elastic a little long so as she grows I can remove the stitches and make it bigger. I think this skirt took me a little over an hour. Which got us to school in our fancy new duds just in time.
