A simple skirt for Asha

A simple skirt for Asha.  I used the elastic with button holes from Asha's old adjustable pants so she can fit it to her comfort.         
I love Amy Butler's fabric.  The pattern and colors are so pretty that you don't need to do much to make something really cute.  If only I had enough fabric to make one for myself.

Adrianne,
Make one! It is so easy, and yet so cute. I folded the bottom fabric in two and sewed together the two seams and the bottom of the top fabric all together so I didn't have to hem the bottom. Iron and top stitch, and all you have left is the elastic. I have a few dresses and skirts I can turn into Asha skirts. I can't wait for spring!

いいね、いいね。Amy Butlerの布は絶対スカートにいいよ。いつか自分のも作ってみてねー。

私、この柄すごく好きで、全く同じ組み合わせでランチョンマットを作ろうと思ってたんだよー。結局ピンクとオレンジにしちゃったけど、緑も落ち着いてていいよねー。

Serious, when you get done with yours, I want one too.

面倒だから書かなかったけど本当は自分のスカートを作るつもりだったの。タイトスカートだったら作れたんだけどAラインには生地が足りなくて断念。ちょっと地味だとは思ったんだけどアーシャのスカートにしたの。

I love the green. So simple, so clean. And what a GREAT way to recycle old elastic. I'm gonna try that too!

Love the skirt - Amy Butler fabric really does make anything better, but that pattern is darling too. Good job!
