Ask your little girl what her favorite piece of clothing is. More likely than not her answer will be that it is a dress or a skirt, and she may also add the word ‘fancy’ to her description.

To celebrate our ‘sugar and spice’ girls, Evening Glory is the second design in my lacy skirts series. It is constructed from the top down, and finished with a knitted on lace hemline.

Options:

  • a skirt with subtle flare
  • a skirt with extra flare
