Thing 133

Today’s Thing is another Hollyburn skirt, this time for Esther. I bought this material at the Haagse Markt when the girls chose fabric (black and pink) for their Renfrews. My plan was to make myself another Coco but I changed my mind — I want something brighter and more summery for a short-sleeved version.

This fabric is, however, perfect for a Hollyburn. The colour goes with most of Esther’s t-shirts, plus it’s lightweight enough for summer and has a bit of stretch for comfort.

I made a few changes for Esther’s version. First, I raised the hemline by five inches. I also skipped the zipper and pulled wide elastic through the waistband. Esther prefers elastic waist everything.

And the blind hem was so much easier than the last time! No weeping and gnashing of teeth necessary.
