A Market Skirt {finally} Finished

A couple months ago I made Lydia a market skirt but she was so excited to wear it I didn't get to the pockets and then I started on other projects and you know how that can go. The other night while the boys were out fishing and the girls were sleeping I tackled the pockets that I was a little nervous about. The tutorial was great and I shouldn't have been worried.


So now it has pockets, which was the perfect finishing touch. I used the same white cotton and eyelet that I did on the waistband and trim.


Lydia was pleased with her 'new' skirt and very impressed that the buttons worked. Yes sweety, I can sew a button. ;)

I am also entering this skirt into Skirt Week 2011, click the button below for details on how to enter yourself and check back over there for tutorials throughout the week.

  1. Just adorable! I Love the pockets! I hear ya on not fully finishing projects. I do this sometimes and then it seems like forever until I get to it!

  2. Sew (pun intended) can she wear it for a skirt, or is it opened in the back?
    so cute.

  3. Cute, cute, cute! Thank you for coming to the party. I love your profile picture by the way...;)

  4. Rebecca! I adore this skirt and my daughter would fall over to have one of her own! I cannot sew, well maybe a semi straight line, but that's pushing it. I am signed up for sewing 101 and I am super excited. However, it will be a very long time before I can make anything as cute as this! I was wondering if you would be interested in making a skirt for my 4 year old? It could be EXACTLY like the one pictured? I will pay big bucks...well not too big, but big enough to make it worth your while? Let me know what you think :)
