the boardwalk skirt

i recently had the chance to test the boardwalk skirt pattern for andrea of GoTo Patterns. it's part of the sun & surf collection at pattern anthology. it's now available for a limited time, along with some other really cute designs!

i made this for my daughter emma. i used the size eight pattern, and it fits well. she will probably be wearing this a lot this spring!

i love that this pattern goes from 6 months all the way to 14 years.

it was a fun skirt to make. i will definitely make another, in better fabrics. we had a very short window for testing, and it was during the time i was snowed in for several days! i just used some random fabrics from my stash. the outer skirt is a lightweight yellow and pink stripe, and the underskirt is a floral quilting cotton. i fancied up my ruffle with crocheted lace on top of the cotton ruffle.  so emma got a new skirt and i used up two fabrics from my stash! win win!
