Diamond Jubilee! Diamond Jubilee!

We’ve been getting ready to have a bit of Jubilee fun.
It’s the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee this year. Here in the UK we celebrate with a FOUR day holiday weekend in June. Yippee!
As well as spectacular official events, I’m sure there will be street parties, bunting, flags and much revelry.

And, although we aren’t really Royal Fanatics at Truly Myrtle, we do love a bit of pomp and the odd curtsey.

Diamond Jubilee!

This Union Jack circle skirt with its soft knit waistband and bobble trim is just what you need for a proper Royal celebration, don’t you agree?

And, when your new skirt is teamed with a new T-shirt, complete with a shiny crown, jewels, a bit of regal fur and puffy sleeves, you just have to twirl!

Diamond Jubilee! Diamond Jubilee!
But, guess what? It’s a double celebration! 
Project Run & Play has started again! 
Do you remember the fun I had last time?!

The new competition has kicked off with a circle skirt theme based on this fab tutorial. 
Do try it! 
It is super easy & super cute :)

I thought I’d let the fantastic flag fabric do the talking, so adapted the original pattern only a little. Instead of the elastic waist I used jersey knit (the same fabric I used for the T-shirt) for a soft, slightly dropped, double fabric waistband. More comfy. That’s important for my girl!

Diamond Jubilee! Diamond Jubilee! Diamond Jubilee! Diamond Jubilee!

Diamonds. Holidays. Parties. Summer. 
I’ve cast on my new top for the knit along.
It’s all good!
