princess and the pea skirt







A little girl wakes from her nap to find a new skirt and the tiniest pea.

She delights in the skirt and stares at the pea as if it were the most wonderful thing. To see such pleasure in simple objects through the eyes of a child. She decides to try to eat it. Oh, not so good...

The Princess and the Pea is currently the favorite fairy tale of Ms. S so how could I not oblige her in making a skirt.
The fabric (if you don't know already) is by Heather Ross. Oh, how I love the double gauze. Let me count the ways....

I love this skirt did you use a pattern?

Thank you everyone!
I didn't use a pattern for the skirt. It uses a half yard of material and I put an inverted pleat in the center front with a wide hand sewn hem.
