Kid's Clothes Week: Swingset Skirt

A couple weeks ago when my parents were visiting, we went to a little town called San Juan Bautista to check out a little quilt shop. While we were there I found this cute colored pencil fabric for a clothing project! I bought it and some solid yellow that coordinated for a skirt for Miss H, but wasn't sure which pattern I'd use. Here is what I came up with. It fits well, and she loves that it twirls!

Pattern: Oliver + S Swingset Skirt
Size: 5
Fabric: My Pencils in Natural by Alexander Henry, and an American Made yellow cotton
Changes: I added 1.5 inches to the length of both the skirt and lining, and I changed the drawstring a little by using a zigzag stitch down the middle of it rather than the strait stitch I've used in the past. I've had trouble with the strait stitch breaking when you tug and tie the drawstring.
