If you haven't go try it. It's a free pattern, thanks, Oliver + S! It almost makes itself, seriously. The ribbon hem is genius.
After making the top one from fabric chosen by the oldest, I made this polka dot one for the youngest with a modification, a narrower 6 inch span above the gathers to make it a drop waist. This of course made it slightly more time-consuming to make, but still easy.
I was fresh out of inspiring ribbon, so I used single-fold bias trim instead. Actually I used double fold bias trim and ironed out the middle crease. But. Still worked. Ribbon woulda been cuter, so more of these skirts for spring and summer planned in the future with some patterned ribbon. Like hers!
