Hurray for this post! I had already bought some terrific Ikat fabric for a dirndl skirt, so the link to the checked skirt in the upper right will be very useful. Thanks :)

Thanks for the this post. I'm going to buy some fabric and ask my mom to sew me some since my sewing skills are limited!

You're a gorgeous gal, Jess. I never miss a post, but I don't tell you that enough. I can't sew, I'm a shite drawer, I'm too impatient for papercraft mostly unless birthdays are involved, but I never miss a post. Forget orange - How about Jess! x

I love your blog!

These are all so cute! I've been wanting to make myself a maxi-skirt for awhile now, so I'm feeling very inspired!

Bek said...

With a burgeoning belly this summer, I am all about skirts! These are really cute, and I can even see me trying my hand at making some for my 3 year old.

Once again, thanks for the links!

I've just decided, I'm going to Sew the Summer AWAY!
