I was fortunate enough to be able to test and sew up the girl version for Sweet Pea.  Whenever I’m sewing for my girl, I have a hard time picking out fabric.  I have fabric that I love, usually simple, muted in colors, not too flashy.  And Sweet Pea has fabric that she loves, bright, vibrant, full of every color in the rainbow.  Well, I dug through my stash and stumbled upon this corduroy fabric that I knew we would both love.  It has the muted colors I love, but is covered in animals.  My girl is an animal lover!

So I bet you want to know more about the pattern and less about the fabric, huh?  It’s a great pattern!  It has great simple lines, but awesome design elements.  I love how the pockets stick out a bit from the body of the skirt.  Every girl loves pockets, and these pockets are great!
