A longer lazy day

So, there I sat, scissors in hand, fabric in mind, all set and ready to start on a lazy days skirt.

The pattern says:

 Determine how long you’d like the finished
length of the skirt to be; then add 2" to that measurement

Did I measure my daughter?


(she moves too fast)

Did I measure one of her skirts?


(they were in another room)

I just cut.

Did it turn out the right length?


(it was tiny)

Another hour, a lot of fiddling, and a couple more inches made it it right.

Note to self: 'lazy day' applies to the wearer, not the sewer.

Still, the skirt is a hit.

She needs another one now,

 a bit longer next time, please, mum.
