The simplest of summer skirts... the width of the fabric joined with a french seam, an elasticated waist and a cheery strip added at the bottom. I used two lengths of skinnier elastic at the waist because I like the look, and the yellow band was added as the ribbon hem in (the free!) Lazy Days Skirt from Oliver+S.
The dreamy fabric is Bartholomeows reef deep water with a Kona cotton solid, probably lemon, used as the trim. These fabrics are beautifully soft. Both from the ever so lovely Sew and Quilt. Oh so happily for online ordering this landed on my doormat in its pretty pink packaging amazingly quickly, as usual. No waiting around for the postie for days and days. And oh I want a skirt like this!
And those few paragraphs seem to be all I can manage these summer holidays! This summer has sped by, far quicker than any other holiday. We have had a fun time doing things, seeing friends, a holiday in Devon, and gentle days. I thought I would find lots of crochet time - this was to be the summer of the hexie blanket - and I have taken it to most places where it has languished in its bag. Devon was cold (with hail) so the perfect place for some crochet where I could bury myself under the blanket in progress but a little P kept returning to the beach shelter as he was chilly and we spent most of the holiday playing top trumps and Uno (thank you Linda and Ems!)
