During the year I've done very little sewing for Louisa, as she's been in school uniform most of the time. Over the holidays, though, I've seen the need for a few more play around clothes. So here's a skort suitable for climbing trees and jumping around while still looking pretty: I did use a pattern but basically it's shorts with a flap of material sewn into the right seam and waistband.
Apparently it's (they're?) very comfy and has been worn non stop for the past day and half since I finished it!
