I made her a denim skirt with a broderie anglaise lace trim:
A red stripey cotton skirt with ricrac trim:
A bright pink needlecord with a fancy ribbon trim:
A royal blue needlecord with another fancy ribbon trim.
I *knew* there was a reason I've been hanging on to all those ribbon trims for years - decades if the truth were told! I remember saying once before on here that my Grandad used to say that, if you kept a thing for 7 years, you'd find a use for it. I suspect I flitted most of these trims when we moved up to Inverness in 1989 - and back down when we moved here in 2000! I know my Grandad would be proud of me! :oD
Debbie sent me a photo of Emily wearing her new denim skirt - how gorgeous does she look?
The other young lady getting skirts was Joanna. Not nearly as fancy as Emily's skirts but she likes them - thankfully!
One in the Lindsay tartan:
And one in a grey stripe - the stripe is hardly visible in real life, never mind in photos!
I used some bias binding I'd made (a few years ago) instead of the skirt facings and also put it around the inside of the hem.
I suppose Joanna's skirts are quite fancy then - on the inside! :oD
