The not so successful photo shoot

Mummy: Elsa would you please put on this skirt that mummy made so I can take some photos?

Elsa: Yes, and can I dance to music?

Mummy: If you like

(Mummy puts skirt on Elsa and a new t-shirt that isn’t stained and messy!)

Mummy: Elsa can you please stand over here so mummy can take a photo?

Elsa: No

Mummy: Elsa can you please sit on the step so mummy can take a photo?

Elsa: No

Mummy: Elsa please come back!

Elsa: No

Mummy: Don’t take it off I haven’t taken a good photo yet!

(Elsa runs off to play minus the skirt)

(Mummy takes some photos of the skirt minus the child)

Isla: Me wear Pretty?

Mummy: Yes Honey you can wear the skirt…Oh dear it is a bit big!

(Isla pulls skirt up over her head to make it stay on)

Mummy: Where’s Isla?……Peek a boo!

(Isla also takes skirt off…Photo shoot over)

Details: Skirt made with the full width of fabric and I think it would be a size 3-4. 12 rows of shirring about 1/3 inch apart. I am planning on attaching some cloth covered buttons in matching fabrics as an embellishment on the waist band. (I have ordered lots of sizes from here)
