Oliver & S Girls Pleated Skirt

I am continuing with the stashbusting challenge at Cation Designs and February's challenge was to make something for someone you love, a perfect time to make a skirt for little e.

I used an Oliver & S pattern I have had for ages. I made the tunic in 2011 and have now made the pleated skirt.

It is a fantastic pattern and the skirt was fairly easy to put together, I made it in an evening.

The fabric is a cotton tartan I bought in Florida in 2011 and has been sitting in my cupboard of doom since. It is a bit lightweight, so doesn't hold the pleats very well, but little e likes it (although the elastic needs tightened as is it a bit loose at the moment!

This is not the look we are really going for, this pic was caught in a small window that little e was feeling ok this week.

Linking to some of these fab linky parties!

  2. You are my sewing inspiration - I hope to one day say 'I made it in an evening' and not 'I cobbled it together over a few weeks' lol. You are one clever lady!
