Milkmaid skirt

I'm trying to make a few items for Ellie this summer - I'm the worst culprit for looking at expensive clothing in stores and saying "I could make that" but never doing it.  So this year, I'm trying to save a few dollars, start some seriously needed de-stashing and am sewing up a few skirts and dresses - maybe even a t-shirt or two.

Last week I completed this little number using the milkmaid skirt tutorial at Crafterhours.   My version was a bit bulky for my liking in the back, but fun and very cute nonetheless (loving the flat front and those little pockets!) and most importantly it suits my 3 year old's taste.  Phew.
