A lazy day skirt for Elizabeth
This is a free pattern from Oliver + S. It’s called lazy day skirt, but really it could easily be called ‘crazy busy day skirt’ since you could accomplish this easily on a crazy busy day. It took me about 5 minutes. Maybe 7. maybe. I did it every lazier than the pattern in that I used some double fold bias tape I had on hand… I must stock up on different colours & widths — it’s so practical!
Elizabeth LOVES it.. And I’m very happy with it, especially because most of her clothes are casual, more casual than I like to see her “out and about” in unless we’re say, heading to the beach. Going to the market or a stroll in town requires a tiny bit more than jersey shorts for example and so I wanted to make her a few skirts & dresses.
The top matches perfectly — and it was a lucky find for 3.94$ on liquidation at Loblaws (a grocery store that also carries stuff and adorably simple affordable children clothes)
Next up for Elizabeth will hopefully be the 2 summer dresses in the Week-end Sewing book by Heather Ross that I’ve finally recieved! (it hung around with Canada Post for a little too long!)
