My mother has been visiting these past few days, and yesterday before she got on the train to go back home we had some really nice mother and daughter time while I was sewing a skirt for Ronja.
The skirt is the “Misty” skirt from the first Ottobre issue this year. Since Ronja is very much into letters at the moment, I wanted to use the japanese import fabric “Letter scramble” that I bought a while ago at Superbuzzy. The other fabrics in the combo are “Spanish Lace” from Alexander Henry and “Calico Flowers” – another Japanese import. For the inner skirt I had a very nice quilting fabric that I bought at a Danish sewing store.
I really like the pattern – it’s beautiful with the visible underskirt, that certainly brings something to the whole. I only altered it slightly because I wanted an elastic at the waist instead of a zipper, so Ronja would be able to put it on herself, and I really like how it turned out. When Ronja got up this morning, she immediately put it on, so I guess it was a success. 🙂
I’m posting modeled pictures as soon as I get around to taking some – at the moment I have to pick up Ronja from the kindergarten. The weather is fabulous, so the garden is the place to be!
