I am in love with Colette Pattern’s Mabel skirt. I even love the model they use for in that link – camera loves that girl and the feeling appears to be mutual. Mabel is a quick sew -about 1 hour – knit skirt project. I have a heavier knit I plan to use next but for the first time out I used some jersey I had bought for Kids Clothing Week. It’s a Volcom print of monsters. The fabric is a bit lighter than what you would normally use for a skirt, think an H&M or Forever 21 level of thin. I made a standard Large (my measurements were close enough for knit) and am happy with the fit.
The color is a bit weird in this shot. The skirt is more like a brick red than a fuchsia but you can see the basic shape.
You can wear it to get the car washed with leggings and pink sneakers.
or in the backyard. Note – it seems I can’t smile while taking my own picture. I will work on it (I’m not really pissed here – just concentrating).
