Okay, I'll Admit It - I Was Wrong


Allow me to be honest for a moment and say that I really just bought the Sunday Brunch Jacket and Skirt pattern for the jacket and I couldn't have cared less about the skirt pattern that accompanied it.  When I originally saw the skirt on the cover I thought "Ughh, a-line skirt...boring!"  

But I'm here today to publicly announce that I was wrong - very, very wrong - because I freaking love this skirt!  

That's O very kindly giving you an unobstructed
view of her new skirt.  How kind....

I love the pockets and the ability you have to make them "pop" by cutting them out in a contrasting fabric.

I love the little kick pleat at the back (which was so incredibly easy to make).  

I love how it has a nicer looking flat band in the front but some elastic in the back to allow for a great fit.  

I love how easily the pattern came together.

Oh, and I love that apparently it provides the perfect outfit in which to do yard work.

In fact, I would have to say that there is nothing that I don't love about this skirt.  It's just an overall love fest around here.

    Sometimes the simples shapes just are the most beautiful - especially with funky pockets. Pockets in general. Does your daughter love pockets? Because if I make something with pockets for my 2-year-old, it's a winner! :) Your little one looks adorable.
