August is meant for relaxing and hanging out on the porch. At least, that’s what we had in mind for this skirt. It’s about as easy to sew as a skirt can be, since it’s made from a single width of fabric. And when it’s finished you’ll still have plenty of time to contemplate the day from the porch swing.
We’ve been testing it on several little girls, and it’s perfect for dog walks too.
With a simple elastic waistband, it’s also comfortable, which is a crucial element for hanging out during the most relaxed month of the year.
But our favorite part is the ribbon at the hem. You can use almost any sort of ribbon in any width you like. It makes a clean finish to the hem, as you can see.

And then go enjoy the rest of your summer. Maybe you’ll find a hammock to share with your favorite active little girl.
