I wanted to make a really girly skirt. Originally I intended this to be for an adult and wanted to sew in a white top. I still might try this out later.
But sometimes I like to take ideas that I think might look good on an adult and model it on a child. There is a very limited selection of modern looking clothing for kids. I'm guessing its because there isn't as much demand.
This is a dark grey wool skirt that is cinched at just below the top with cased elastic. I like the way the top of the skirt flares out. It resembles the look of the Lawn Frock, however, the Lawn frock had a cleaner pleated look. This is simply gathered which also has its own appeal.
I added a blue denim striped seersucker belt and tied it in a bow to the side of the skirt. Since this is a wool skirt, it can be appropriate for winter.
I liked the blue striped belt and pink top paired together with the gray wool. It has a very January look. All that's missing is a large round 3' pink balloon.
