Gator Girl Skirt

Added Mar 19, 2010

Newport, Rhode I...






Skinny wale corduroy skirt with low wide waistband, front fly zipper, back darts, and four Beetle Bailey fabric lined pockets. I added a Trick or Treat ribbon loop and pretend Florida Gator patches.
This was a request by my 9 year old TN granddaughter for something to wear to her big brother’s baseball tournament in Florida.
It was an adaptation of Burda 8179-scaled down to little girl size & this time, jumper top eliminated. I LOVE this pattern!
I adore Euro mix and match prints for children. I was motivated by The Gangs of New York movie on TV last Sunday-what amazing colorful wardrobe design!
This is far, far from couture, but fun. I only hope it’s not too hot for TN or FL!

    Definitely fun. I also love the mix and match fabrics. Does your grandson play for UF baseball Team?

      Thank you! I approve & am inspired by how you have so aptly used your stowed fabrics..
      Actually, he is 15, so it’s a TN H.S.age travel team.
      However, he is a major Tim Tebow fan. He also plays football.
      You know how that goes, with your sons!
