This was a happy project at our house the other day. Wednesdays at my house is crafty club with six, sometimes seven girls. This skirt is from the ever-creative designer liesl from Oliver + S patterns. She has generously provided this free pattern. Uninterrupted, you can make this skirt in about a half hour. Having gone fabric shopping the previous week, the girls were so eager to sew their skirts. One by one, they sat on my lap, and I took charge of the foot pedal, and they did most of the rest of the work. It was magical. They were quiet, serious and set on doing their work. They pushed the elastic through the casing, they turned the hem, they pressed the seams open. Afterward, they all lined up for this picture. The pride they felt was so evident. I sent them home twirling and happy.
