In our household, there is usually fairness and squareness. Ok, husband and I try as best as we could. So when I decide to make a tiered skirt, I made 2. Some fabrics came recently from an online shopping binge and I've got some cotton double-gauze, double-sided gingham fabrics. And out came 2 tiered skirts.
The checks are different sizes on each side of the fabric so I played with it for the different tiers. The first tier is on the bias and gave me a bit of trouble because it stretched so much. The pattern is from this Japanese pattern book.
A pink one in size 130cm for JY.
And a beige one in size 120cm for CY who is growing so tall, there's 3 years gap between them but only 10cm difference in height.
Can't resist showing you the flower shoes CY is wearing. Bought them in Singapore. I've got a fondness for them. Too bad there aren't any my size.
2 girls, 2 skirts. Skirts made up of rectangles and elastic bands are good for my ego. They make me feel that I can sew. So I'm sure there'll be more of them in my future.
Don't trust them to stay still even for a while for the photo shoot. The action du jour is 'doing the robots'.
