This blog started with with me making a dress for my niece, that was almost a year ago so I thought it was about time to create her something new to wear.  I picked up instructions for a patternless skirt via Pinterest and it promised to be an easy make. It definitely lived up to expectations and took just an afternoon to make from start to finish.

Its adorable and I have plans for more of these using a variety of different materials, designs and finishings.  There are so many possibilities, I just need to wait for it the skirt to reach the UK to make sure I took the measurements correctly.
