So I finished the Chickadee blouse from Clever Charlotte and it was well received.
Now on to the Chickadee skirt!
Take care cutting out-read the pattern directions-I ended up cutting Tildy's the wrong way but I think she will forgive me.
I found it just as easy to trace the pieces but remember to trace the right direction!
We want to interface the lining!
Except for the opening.
I stitched mine differently as I like to sew with the bulk of my fabric to the left.
Consider stitching the zigzagged end of the elastic(done to prevent fraying)to the skirt to prevent little fingers undoing the button and losing the elastic inside the casing.
You know what fiddly fingers are like!
Liddy thought a big button might be nice.
I thought some hanging ties might be nice.
How cute Chickadee!
Perfect with the blouse Clever Charlotte!
Just in case you don't have any button hole elastic to hand there is another way to keep the back adjustable and allow for growth.
Another cute Chickadee(even if it is the wrong way around)
Isn't it delightful?
Thanks for popping by....
