(FYI, Clover put together the ensemble in these photos, including the headband with flowers sticking straight out of her forehead. )
She chose the reddish orange fabric from my stash, and I thought it looked like the color of the rebel pilot suits in Star Wars….. Rebel pilot princess! To amuse myself, I added some diagonal pintucks to the front of the skirt.
It’s a very full skirt (per her requirements), and maxi length (also her requirements), with large pockets to carry her blasters and light sabers (and dolls and jewelery). I sewed the pockets onto separate side panels from the main front and back panels so that the edges of the pockets would be encased in the side seams. If anyone has ever made treasure pocket pants from Figgy’s, it was like the technique from that pattern.
The lighting was not ideal for getting photos taken, with the mid day sun glaring on us, but it needed to be done before she wore the skirt any more and trashed it somehow. Thankfully, she loves it.
