The US presidential race wasn’t the only race happening on Tuesday – there was also the Melbourne Cup of course! And for me the race was to get this skirt made for Clare before Stella woke from her midday sleep.
I made up the pattern. The skirt is gathered onto the elasticised waistband – which works particularly well if the skirt is fuller than this one, as it reduces bulk a bit around the waist while still providing maximum twirlability. I did take some photos during the construction of this skirt – would anyone like a tutorial?
