A New Skirt
Yes. I did some sewing! The weather has been warming nicely and quickly, as typical around here. My oldest girl has grown so much since last summer that there is no way she's going to be using any of last years clothes. And, as I've browsed the clothing section each week during my grocery trip, I just haven't found anything that I've been happy with for her. The fit is always too tight, too low cut, the skirts and shorts are entirely too short.....so she has been down to nothing more than a pair of athletic pants and a pair of jeans from fall that are verging on bursting at the seams, lol! Then, during a little blog-browsing the other day, I saw these adorable skirts and knew they would be perfect for spring and summer around here. I must thank Randi for the inspiration and the link to the tutorial for this super-easy-to-make skirt!
After determining the measurements I'd need for my girl, the length turned out to be perfect, it's not too twirly and full, it's not "in the way," and it's just right for the warmer days we've been having. I can't think of a better way to use up all the little pieces of fabric that I have left over! The fabric combinations could be endless :) I am very happy with it and will hopefully have a selection ready for her this weekend.....and for my littlest girl, too :)
