Well, it does sort of.
It's more of a working title though, until something more suitable pops into my head.
Ziggidy doo is the working title. yep, that's a joint effort from Lily and me!
This little skirt will be part of a little pattern series, together with a beanie and a jumper and maybe a few other things. I really love this skirt, and I can honestly say the photos don't do it justice. It really is hard to photograph a skirt. You want to get the skirt in but you don't want to lose the personality. But in doing that you often lose some of the detail of the skirt. Alternatively, if you photograph just the skirt
you lose the personality and that attraction of the cute model.
Tell me I'm overthinking this, please!!!
Regardless, I really do love this little skirt!
I'll tell you what I really like about it. It's not too little girly, it's a little bit more grown up without being too tweeny or too old, if you know what I mean. It's light and not too bulky and it just seems to skim the body and hips. I guess it being on a 6 year old lean little things does help the appeal. And I just love the texture of the zigzag stitch pattern. Perhaps it could even be slimming on an adult, do you think? I am planning to knit myself this skirt, and even write the pattern up in adult sizes...but don't hold your breathe. My track record with adult knits ain't that great at the moment!
Anyway, I've spent the afternoon grading this pattern and now it just needs a little prettying up and playing around with and it's off to the testers.
Any ideas for a pattern name will be greatly appreciated.
