First Colette Mabel

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).
