A Skirt for Tough Chicks

Emelie found this skirt in Sew What! Fleece and just had to have it. She loved the contrast of a twirly skirt with a ruffle made out of tough, camouflage fabric.

I didn't use fleece, at her request, because she wanted a more year-round garment. If I had, it would have been even quicker since many of the edges could have been left unfinished. Even still, it only took me a couple hours to put it together.

Here she is, really not wanting her photo taken!

This is a poor shot of the godet in the back which adds more fullness to the skirt.
