This is the skirt that Sarah sewed.

This is the skirt that I helped my cousin to sew. I gave her the instructions and did a little of the sewing right at the end so she could finish it before going home, but she did the rest herself. The fabric is quilting fabric from Spotlight, on sale for $5 p/m. The skirt is supposed to be mid-knee length or just below, but, being 16, she wanted it shorter. We shortened it as we would for a shorter person - folding it and redrawing the sides - and I think we should have just cut it off so that is was a little narrower at the hem, but other than that, I think it's cute, and think she should be very proud of herself for making it in only a few days.
