With the baby heading our way, possibly sooner rather than later, I am becoming very good at posting the stuff I make instead of waiting around for a few days until I manage to get decent enough photos.
And it just so happens that the skirt goes perfectly well with the top that I made last year. It does look like I made it as a set, didn’t I?
The size is 5T with the usual 1″ extended length, but I extended the lining by almost 1.5″ so it is hemmed just above the main fabric.
The main fabric is khadi (hand spun cotton), from Khadi Gram Udyog here in New Delhi. The lining is blue printed muslin that I brought in Pune. Oh, and for some visual interest I added beads to the tie.
The skirt is a super quick sew, and despite the fact that I took my time with it, the whole thing didn’t take more than three hours. With only three pattern pieces, I want to make more. Maybe even double sided?
So. Anyway, happy with the new skirt, she went off to the Farmer’s market attired in the new skirt, which brings me to the next topic (unrelated) which is of plums.
We bought them last week, and they have been absolutely delicious. Today I made a cake with the last of the plums with a recipe from here.
How was your Sunday?
