Polka dots swing skirt

Probably my favorite garment that I have sewn for Sara so far is this skirt. It is a simple pattern for a lined skirt, but with a lovely cut. I really like it a lot. The pattern is from oliver+s and it is one that I will use for sure many times.

The Pattern review:

Pattern Description: Oliver+s swing set skirt: A gathered skirt with elastic casing and drawstring, fully lined

Pattern Sizing: Size 4T for a four-year old.

Did it look like the original photo/drawing once sewed?: Yeah

Were the instructions easy to follow?: Yes, they are very clear.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?: I like the cut and the fit.

Did you learn anything new from this sewing project?: Well, it has been the first lined skirt I have sewn. The way of inserting the elastic was quite clever.

Fabric Used: polka dotted denim

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: None.

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?: For sure. I will sew a winter version soon, and surely further versions will come.
