Once upon a time a little girl wanted a floral high waist skirt form one of those yukky chain store.
Luckily she had a very clever mum who never threw anything out.
That clever mum was able to hunt through her patterns from when she was a girl (1986 see pattern below) & her fabric stash to find just the right ditsy floral print for the perfect skirt.
So they sat together and created a most magnificent skirt that cost nothing but time & love.
Now that little girls wears that skirt when ever she can.( And when that little girl is being a right pain her mum can sit and smile remembering the time they made a skirt).
PS: she's not so little she's a teenager.
