Tickled pink

We went to a party on the weekend for a little four year old girl who "likes anything pink".  Although this probably describes most four year old girls I took the suggestion seriously and used a Little Bird pattern for an A-line skirt, to sew up a pink polka dot skirt for her.

With a bit of ric rac trim for good measure!

It was the kind of pattern with the helpful instructions to measure the child's waist and subtract 2cm for the waist elastic length.  Now if I was running around daycare measuring waist lines I would probably be getting myself arrested in the bargain, so I took the punt that if the waist was about the same as a pair of size 4 boys tracksuit pants then I am probably not far off the mark. Hopefully I will get the pleasure of seeing her wearing it, um, being a perfect fit, of course.

Thats gorgeous Caroline! I am sure it will be a huge hit with the little girl. It certainly would be with a certain 4 year old girl in our house who also strangely enough likes anything pink!
