|Little Sister's Milkmaid skirt|
|I reversed the direction of the fabric for the pocket lining--subtle but kind of a cool detail!|
It was a close call--I had to adapt the waistband because I didn't have enough fabric to do it the way the tutorial describes, but I was able to make this little beauty with a remnant that was only 1/3 of a yard. I paid 85 cents for the remnant. I did have to buy the turquoise bias tape, but I had a 60% off coupon, so that cost about a dollar (and I didn't use it all). Funny--I think I may have paid more for the bias tape than the fabric! I guess I really do need to start making my own bias tape.

Anyway, super cute! And she agreed to wear it! Hopefully that will happen for me again, because I'd love this to be part of her Thanksgiving outfit. Wish me luck!
