I love this summery a-line skirt of Rosie’s. She made it from a light weight cotton muslin and a column of small white buttons. I think those buttons are the perfect touch – they give the skirt a bit of character without detracting from its simple twirly shape.
Everything about the last few days has felt like summer – the hot weather, the lazy days at work, the pretty skirts I see everywhere, but the way I know for sure that summer is here is the ripe plums on our trees. The basket of plums Rosie’s holding looks even more like summer to me than her white cotton skirt.
