A New Skirt

I hope you had a wonderful Easter! 

We have had BEAUTIFUL weather this Spring - and Sunday was perfect!

Our oldest came home from college for the weekend.

In between cleaning and cooking and washing many loads of college laundry, I found time to sew a cute skirt for one of my daughters.

It took about an hour and a half TOTAL to sew and adjust four times until she liked the fit.

Just a little 'trial and error.'  I didn't use an actual pattern, just instructions from a couple of blogs.

Here she is posing for me....

I chose to take the photos at dusk in a dimly lit room with an iphone.  Just thought I would share that in case you mistakenly thought these were professional photos...

(Maggie has to hop in the photos, too - she is the blur in the picture.)

My daughter picked the fabrics.  We used Amy Butler fabrics - Dancing Paisley/Lemon and Laurel Dots/Cherry.

Pretty cute, huh?

Have a nice day!


Pin It!
