Oh what a fun skirt to make. Sweet is the right name! The "quarter panel" in the front is so perfect for embroidery work. I had thought to make this an all elastic waist until I realized the design truly calls for the front flat waistband to show off the panel (and embroidery work). I'd not made a skirt with this type of waistband before. The first one was a bit wonky, but the second one came out just right. So if you've not made this waistband style before, I'd suggest basting and seeing if it's right; then sewing with your regular stitch length. And do make sure the waist measurement is correct - match it up with the measurement/size guide so it's not too loose and falls down on her hips.
