The origin of the name for this skirt is a great example of my usual train of thought. It went something like this:
The fabric is seersucker. Seer. Sucker. Seer Skirt. Seer Sucker Skirt. Sucker Skirt!
Wait, that sounds weird.
Sucker. Candy. Lolipop.
Yeah, it's kinda like that...
This was made from about 1/2 yard of classic blue seer sucker. I made it up, so I can't give you a pattern. It would be super easy to recreate, though. It's just a gathered rectangle sewn into a waistband with a contrast band at the bottom. Plain ol'zipper in the back.
I made this last summer, and it was perfect for frolicking about Rome during our Italian vacay last August. (I know, I mentioned Rome in this post as well. Not the same trip. Sono stato lì tre volte!)
