The secret project I was working on: a birthday present for my sister. I had to guess her size as I wanted it to be a surprise and – hurray – it fit perfectly! And I think she even likes it…
A pattern from KnipMode" – August 2012, model 13 – which was easy to follow (and It helped that I had made the skirt before – project “Who wants to be a Ballerina”)
The skirt has 6 pleats front and back.
I topstiched the seam, the pockets and the waistband with double thread to make them more prominent.
The flower decorative band was sewn on by hand and I attached a selfmade label to make it all look “real”.
