Butterick 4277

Here's a quick and easy skirt to sew.
It's a bit wrinkled because Sunny wore it to preschool today.

Here it is before she went to preschool:
Butterick 4277 on Sunny
She likes that it has a dog on it (of course!).
Butterick 4277 again
Can you tell the girl likes dogs?

Some construction details:
I serged the seams, added an adjustable elastic waistband, and added dog paw print bias to the front top edge. It is made from a midweight corduroy that I bought at Joann's many moons ago.

It was easy to sew and I might sew it again. It's a nice skirt, but I think the pattern is drafted for a beefier kid. Sunny is anything but beefy.

I bought the embroidery from Embroidery Library and embroidered it using my Husqvarna Viking Designer Diamond. I love my embroidery machine!

I found you through Pattern Review, looking for a review of this one - it's really cute! I'm doing the pants for my not at all beefy 4 yr old and am doing a *lot* of adjusting.
