I should just give up already

So cute, right? Practice skirts to get back into “real” pattern sewing for my niece. I thought the waist seemed huge for an almost 6-yo, but what did I know? Followed the measurements as supplied to me.

Did a full lining, sewing it in under the waistband and under the hem so no ugly edges showed. Loved this pattern because there was no hem to do. Just a fold over and sew. I *really* hate hemming.

The pink’s from her corduroy Christmas dress last year, the one tragically et up in a house fire. The zebra’s her favorite print.

Yeah. It didn’t fit. Way too big.
