Saturday morning I got the best gift a girl could get...three uninterrupted hours of sewing (thanks to a very nice husband and cooperative toddler). I spent that time cutting out and sewing up Ella's Bubble Bottom Skirt from Patterns By Figgys.
You gotta love a skirt that you can sew up in a morning. Especially when it comes out this cute!

|Hey, when you look this good|
you don't have to wear a shirt!
I've never made a bubble skirt before so I don't know how you typically construct one, but I know that the elastic waist on this skirt was different than a "typical" elastic waist and I love the way it came out.
I made the 18 month size and despite the fact that Baby O will be be 18 months in a couple days it seems a bit big for her, but hopefully that means that it'll still fit her when summer comes around because I don't think we'll be having skirt-weather for much longer.
In the mean time, it appears to be the perfect outfit for gardening.
