Margaret Anne does look nice in pink--such a pretty skirt! I really like the shape of this pattern...I wonder if there's something similar for women?

Fruity, lively and lovely. This is such a cute skirt. I like the seer sucker inside !!! Neat sewing Christa !

Here's another vote in favor of no belt loops! The skirt is perfect as it is, and the flattering waistband might have been marred or hidden by belt loops and a belt. Margaret Anne looks like she stepped right out of the pages of a magazine. She looks so adorable and 'put together.' I'll bet she was much admired at church. Beautiful work, Christa!

Oh, goodie, another FAVORITE! I agree, belt loops are NOT NEEDED, and it's just because I'm i-m-p-a-t-i-e-n-t. Margaret Anne gets CUTER every time I see her, especially when she's sporting her new outfits. I love the fabric you've used, and also the band on the bottom. As usual, your work is IMPECCABLE!

I can see why it's your daughter's new favorite's soooo cute! (just like your daughter!) What great print and the color compliments your daughter's complexion nicely. Great job Christa! I really like this look!

What a pretty skirt! Just what I need to motivate me to start working on some things again from the magazine.

Sweet little skirt for a pretty little girl. The fabric is just too cute and the contrasting facing is perfect!

Looks like your daughter is getting a bunch of new "favorite" clothes. This skirt is very cute. Love the coordinating waistband facing. Great detail.

Such a cute style! Margaret Anne looks so pretty in pink, and I love the touches of lime green (and kiwi green) in the fabric! Excellent work and very helpful review.

Very cute and so springlike!!! The contrasting facing is so "boutique" looking. MA is right - no belt loops needed. She looks super cute.

My goodness, Christa, you are on a roll here with another fantastic garment for Margaret Anne. It's really cute especially with the bottom band and the fabric makes it totally cute cute cute! Margaret Anne made a good call deciding to stop production and just wear it!

I just love the colorful prints on all these clothes you are making. This skirt is so cute with it's contrast facing. All these clothes are extra special coming from the Ottobre magazine that you have to trace out, an added step, but you don't blink an eye doing this. You are so patient, God Bless you Christas for this virtue.

This is just another adorable garment on Margaret Anne. I love the bright color, fabric, and the band detailing at the hemline. I also love how this beauty smiles and looks beautiful in her new skirt. You have certainly made a lot of sewing progress during this holiday, despite what you think. LOL, all these girls are so cute in their clothes.
