It wasn't until after the skirt was made up that I realised the buttons were far too big. But by then I had my heart set on a ladybug skirt and so I found some cute buttons on ebay specifically for that purpose! I'm glad I did - Katherine declared the end result "so toot!" and so in the end it was all worth it.
I really love the Oliver + S Hopscotch skirt - I've made it quite a few times now. I love how it's got a flat front and the elastic at the back. I really like the buttons down the front too. The pockets are a bit of a pain to get right so if I just want to whip something up quickly I leave them off. Shhh, don't tell anyone!
This was one I made out of some drill I saw in the remnant box while standing in line at Spotlight. I think it cost me $2. I had just enough to make the skirt - without the pockets.
Both skirts were a size 3T with a bit of added length. They are still a bit big on her but this way they will see her through the year. I think the ladybug one will look adorable in winter with the tights and just the right top. Any suggestions as to what I could pair it with?
