Rainbow Request

So Emma is going through a wee skirt stage ....... and i thought that i'd have a bit of fun

This was a very basic skirt, from a rectangle - it's the first one i have made since high school (actually not sure I've ever sewn a skirt) - but there are some amazing free little girls skirt patterns on some wicked blogs that i'll link to for you over our skirt making phase.

But Emma had a request after i went fabric shopping today, i came home with a lovely mix of fabrics and ribbons (a touch overwhelming really) so she sighed and said 'just a rainbow skirt mummy' ... so i got my thinking cap on and came up with this:

I'll take some new pictures in the morning as you really can't see in these that I've used silver thread on the ribbons we found today, and have lined it as well - all the material is basics from stash (typical!).

No doubt there will be a very excited wee girl in the morning ......
