Little Summer Skirts

We have added some lovely fabric ranges to the website this summer, including this one from Red Rooster fabrics

red-rooster-fabrics-112-c[ekm]180x180[ekm]They are gorgeous summery colours so I thought I would make some little skirts for my younger nieces, they are very simple to make, I just used a rectangle of fabric for each skirt, some pretty bias binding to enclose and hem the bottom edge

Little summer skirts 009And thats it, a really quick and easy make! I made 3 and trimmed them with a variety of ric-rac, lace and bias binding

Little summer skirts 016I will be seeing them all next weekend so I will try and get them to model their outfits for me and post a few pictures.
