a skirt


for after the baby is born. Simplicity pattern 5505. Simple A-line skirt with elastic waist. Sewn from thrifted sheet (from which I've also made some tote bags). The pattern claims it is a "2-hour skirt," but it took much less time than that. Only about 40 minutes (so I've sewn two more).

That is a great pattern for a skirt -- I love big flowers. And 40 minutes? I might have to try my hand at one of these.

I love it. You know why? Not only is it a super cute little skirt, but my parents had those sheets for their bed when I was a little girl! The apron right above is adorable too.
