Week Two - Yellow

Week Two of the colour challenge is to make everything in the colour yellow. The Japanese fabric I had been waiting on arrived yesterday and between outings I managed to sew my first item. I designed a simple swing skirt from scratch and was pleased with the result:

I added a layer above the hemline, which may be let down as the little girl grows taller, extending the skirt length by two inches. It is a size 5 and I'll put it in my Etsy shop tomorrow.

Now ... what else is lying around the studio that could pass for yellow?

That is CUTE! And really makes me warm up to yellow. (hehe!)
My mom used to sew all our clothes and always allowed for letting down the hem. Good thinking!

I think I'm bending the rules on yellow a little myself; can't wait to see what you come up with next!
