A Little Farmgirl Style

There she sits; skirt spread across the floor admiring the beauty of it. My oldest farm girl is a real rough and tough gal, but she has always loved a full skirt- especially hand made ones. This week I finished a new one just for her in blue bandana print cotton, as per her request.

French seams bind the panels of this farm girl wrap around skirt. The fullness and flutter drape just right flattering height and shape. A reinforced waist line gives definition and detail; top-stitched for extra durability. Hem- just 'tea length' flatters her long frame showing her summer sandals just enough. Paired with a white knit top and cotton crochet shrug, the skirt makes a beautiful breezy ensemble just right for sun and sandals. 
The finishing touch? A leather purse complete with silver horse shoes and flashy silver grommets - now that's a little farm girl style!
