Little M loves this skirt and, I must say, I wouldn't say no to an adult-sized version for myself. The swishy, drapey fabric is Robert Kaufman Brussels Washer Linen Blend (55% linen, 45% rayon) in Paris blue. I used 3/4 of the yard I purchased to make pattern p: tiered skirt in a size I can't remember. She's worn it twice in the last four days, and dripped ice cream on it both times :) The first drips were chocolate, necessitating immediate stain treatment and laundering. After twenty years of washing clothes, I am finally learning the lesson of treating stains ASAP! It was probably foolish to choose such a light color for this very active six-year-old, but it's so sweet on her. And the blue matches the floral shirt I made for her this spring...which she won't wear. Ha.
Everyone is scheduled to return from camp any moment. She and I are both excited to see our crew. I probably need to squeeze in forty winks before they throw open the door. I packed this week with Little M so full of good things that I'm exhausted!
