There is a sew along being hosted by Mel Goodsell on her blog, and there are so many gorgeous skirts being shown that I couldn't resist having a go.
The good news is, not only did I have a piece of suitable fabric, but I actually managed to do it - I didnt use a pattern, I just guessed and hoped for the best - it only took about 1/2 hour. The downside to my hoping for the best, was the guestimate of the sizing was a bit off. Its too small for Isaac (well for a little girl the same size as him), and too big for Jazz. I did think about putting a couple of straps on it and making it into a little top - might look cute with some denim cutoffs.
