Ella's new skirt...

After working madly towards yesterday's market, I decided last night that it was time to sew something for my own kids for a change. This skirt is the result! It's my own design, and has been made with a size 3 length (to hopefully fit for at least this Summer and next), and size 00 waist. 

The waistband and hem are the same fabric, with the feature in between. 

It is constructed using French seams, which I love the look of, but am thinking in future I'll use the overlocker as it got so think that when I sewed the side seam I broke a needle! I had to use a thicker needle to sew the side seam, then switch back to a thinner needle for the elastic casing.
