A Skirt for the Princess

I enjoyed a day off from my Mami-duties.... and sewed.
 I found this pattern while browsing through sewing blogs, This one is from this blogger - she is making a lot of awesome stuff, so I will be back there and copy some more....
 I even tried t o add two pockets, so it won't look to plain. I kind of like it....
Then I made my first button wholes, even though they are not for buttons, but I made them for the elastic. This way, it enables me to pull some out when she is still skinnier, and can release some (or even add some elastic) for when Peanut is bigger.
Peanut even modeled for me today...

I will make another skirt, with the same fabric, just opposite. Floral skirt with the green seam on the bottom. And I will try a bow this time as accessory.... 

UPDATE: I added a button to the pockets:
The site (To Sew With Love) where I got his cute and easy pattern from, hosts a blog hop. So I copied the list with the right tool, you should see a list below.I have not checked out each and every one, but most, and there are some real talented people out there! I love all their creativity. Awesome!

Hi! Your skirt turned out so pretty and your model looks so adorable with it! I like the pockets that you've added and I also love the idea re:buttonholes for your elastic band! That is such a clever idea so kids could use the skirt for a longer time! Thanks a lot for sharing and for linking back! I am sharing this on our Facebook page, too! Have a lovely day. you've just made mine a lovely one ^^)

Hugs,
