Peek A Boo Pattern: Skip Along Skort

As I mentioned in the Skyline Skort post... this is the wee girlie version from Peek A Boo called Skip Along Skort.
The shorts were made from a previously loved tee shirt in my stash.
I also wanted to make a shirt to go with this skort so this is what I came up with...
And yet another great pattern from Amy Hindman at Peek A Boo Pattern Shop!

My version of a Sport Skirt, a Peek A Boo Pattern inspiration

In my last post I shared the Skyline Skort from Peek A Boo Pattern Shop.  It reminded me of a pattern that's been dancing around the fringes of my mind for a while now.  I drew up this quick sketch and made some measurements.

I'm calling it a "Sport Skirt".  I modified Amy's PAB Skyline Skort pattern to create this one.  Modifications:  Made the skirt slimmer, longer and changed up the bottom to be similar to the School's Out Shorts.
I wanted something comfortable and MaryVance *loves* pockets... and easy enough for running around playing soccer and dodge ball and... I did not make shorts under this one but I will next time.
Thanks to Amy at PAB for inspiring me to get this skirt out of my head and onto my daughter!
