Rainbow Skirt

Over the past few weeks we have been blessed with some beautifully sunny days, so it's begining to feel like we can confidently crack open the summer wardrobes. Unfortunately, my niece has outgrown most of her summer wardrobe so I was enlisted to make some bright and breezy summer skirts.

The fabric is seersucker, with a plain white cotton lining.

The waistband is flat fronted, with an adjustable elasticated back. I also added ties to the front waistband, attached at the side-seams. Both the waistband and ties are cut on the bias for contrast.

This skirt was so quick and easy to whizz up and required very little pattern drafting, so I'm sure I will be making many more before summer is through. And maybe I'll even find time for a tutorial... watch this space!
