spring skirt

I've been doing quite a bit of sewing both for Ms. S and for a shop update for Mackey Blue.

Here is one of the skirts I made for S recently. It's a simple elastic waist skirt with pockets. I trimmed the pockets in some vintage ribbon that was rather stiff but worked out well. She seems to be growing up so fast these days. Sniff! It's all good though really. She can now say Matthew (more like Mafew) but, previously she was calling him - Manny, T, him and brother though a bit of that was encouraged because we thought it was funny. In this photo it looks like she is holding an imaginary cup of tea. She loves Tea so we now do tea time together every day. How fun!

She wore it to the park to feed the ducks and to play on the slides and ride the swings. The Spring weather seems to have arrived. Hooray!
