Pattern Description:

Ask your little girl what her favorite piece of clothing is. More likely than not her answer will be that it is a dress or a skirt, and she may also add the word 'fancy' to her description.

To celebrate our 'sugar and spice' girls, Spring Foliage is the first design in my lacy skirts series. It is constructed from the top down, and finished with a foliage lace hemline.

*Sample shown in Madelinetosh Tosh Sport, in Grashopper colorway.
