The Market Skirt is my latest personal sewing project and probably the last one for a little while now as I keep up with my shop and custom orders for Shop Handmade. I don't have much of a stash for personal sewing but did find some fabric that 'little miss fussy' approved - red and white polkadots, she 'approved' the pattern too! I had some white left over from my quilt and used it as the trim, it looks so crisp and fresh. I made it bigger as she is almost four but I found my fre-styling ways made it way too baggy around the waist. So I un-picked - ughh and made a smaller waistband and it turned out fine.

I have to share my typical Anya moment with you, I am sure some can relate... I presented the spotted skirt with much excitement to Anya, expecting that she would match my enthusiasm. She looks at it and with a deadpan look on her face says, "It doesn't have buttons" - *sigh*, I inwardly rolled my eyes, trying to play it cool. So, we added love heart buttons, I let her know it was good for twirling and happy days!
