The last skirt I'm going to show you this week, is for the oldest of the three sisters.
Clark was really concerned about this skirt, and the fact that it is green and blue. EVERY time he saw me working on it he'd express his concern that she would not like it. "I think it looks a little bit boyish", he'd say. I happen to love the scale of this print, and the colors. I'm hoping that this little eight year old can get past the fact that it's mint green, aqua, and cornflower blue (the girliest greens and blues you can have).
I added a small mint crochet trim between the print, and the solid white band. There are four pleats on the front of the skirt, and the back features an elastic casing. It was fun to work with the print of the fabric when determining pleat placement.
We added pockets, and an aqua blue ribbon sash. Three different skirts, for three different sisters. Hopefully they like them, and put them to good use.
