Pot O’ Gold Skirt From Amy of During Quiet Time!
Ok, you guys, this one took a long time. The other skirts were picked fairly shortly after the deadline for submissions, but Susan and I were still trying to pick a little girls’ skirt winner this morning! (well, afternoon for me) Next year, someone else is making this decision!
In the end, we chose Amy’s skirt because it combined some of our favorite elements: natural linen, hand stitched embroidery, a hint of patchwork-y goodness in the contrast band, and a really adorable pocket.
But beyond that, we just love that she came up with this idea in the first place – to make the pocket the “pot”, and to even make it slightly “pot-shaped”. And the placement of the rainbow, coming out of the side seam, is brilliant!
This skirt is gorgeous enough for adults to appreciate, but has just the right amount of whimsy for a little girl. Congratulations Amy! We hope you love your new stuff!

Jenny at Sew Pretty Dresses made this pattern by copying a store-bought dress – love that. The pleat detailing at the drop-waist is really lovely, and this is also one of our very favorite fabrics!
