Anyway. I started this Oliver + S skirt for K at the beginning of March. All that was left for the last week or so was the top button. LOL. What a procrastination. K and I used snaps down the front instead of buttons, but opted for an actual button for the waistband. I didn't want any snap popping open there.
This is a yard of stash fabric I used too! Michael Miller Happy Hills. I purchased this last March for $8.98 from fabric.com. The cute yellow pockets are from flannel scraps. The cotton is a bit stiff for this skirt but I've only pre-washed it so far. K is developing a few rounder areas lately, namely her rear end and her tummy. She insists on the skirt sitting below her belly button, but then it rides up her swayback. Knits fit her much better but I have so much cotton to use up.
Sewing this pattern was fun. Oliver + S always have great instructions. The measurements put her in a size 12 width and 10 length but it is clearly too wide and too long. I think a 10 width and 8 length would have been about right. I guess to me it looks cuter on the pattern envelope and the hanger. Love those pockets though!
