I think she likes it! I think it still needs some distressing, but I'll get to that on another day. . .because now Allie won't take it off.
If you remember in my previous post, this skirt was my inspiration, but I din't have quite enough denim to do it exactly like the Chasing Fireflies one. I think I captured the essence though, and Allie never saw the original, so she doesn't know the difference. I'm fairly sure my version is longer too. She's only 7, after all!
I left both the top and bottom of the band around the bottom unfinished. I'm guessing it will fray nicely. (About this picture . . .lol. . please be kind when viewing my newbie attempts at erasing the background.)
And here's a slightly imperfect zipper fly and waistband, but seriously, have you every really studied some of your RTW clothes? Keeping that in mind, I'm happy with it. :) See how the band is already starting to fray some!
These started with another Otto pattern. . .the butterfly pants from the Autumn 2009 issue. The only alteration I made was to remove the lines that would make separate legs and a crotch; I made the rest of the pattern, including the pockets and zipper as drawn.
Some of you have told me that you also have knock-offs on your sewing table, and I'm really looking forward to seeing them.
