Skirts for Asha

Asha was in need of some skirts that came down to her knees.  Now that she is old enough to start middle school next month, she is not so excited to model the clothes anymore.  Can you tell?     

skirt one
fabric: Walmart calico, 100% cotton
pattern: Holiday Girl Clothes, view19

skirt two
Alison gave me the four tiered skirt piece a while back.  I hemmed the side seam and put cotton/lycra knit on for the waist band.

skirt three
fabric: heavier poly/cotton blend that used to be Scott's mom's jumper
pattern: Holiday Girl Clothes, view 18
size 140

patio pillows

In an effort to make our drab front deck more inviting, I made some pillows in bright and happy colors.     

We had some rain in the middle of the night, but the outdoor fabric kept the inserts dry.  Some plants and a rug should complete the space.
