Since Little M started big school a couple of weeks ago, Little P has been begging me to let her start pre-school. Last week I relented and signed her up. To mark the occasion I ordered her a shiny new Dora backpack off ebay (her choice) and got the sewing machine out to attempt a new skirt for her first day of pre-school, a lovely idea I borrowed from Dana at Made.
The tricky bit was figuring out how to join the two pieces together for a neat finish and end up with them both facing the right way. After a lot of trial and error I worked it out; slip the shorter skirt inside the longer skirt both facing right-side out. Stitch together around the top and flip the shorter skirt to the outside. Feels wrong but weirdly it works.
A ra-ra skirt perfect for stomping through autumn leaves,
