It's getting dangerous to take my girl's to the fabric store with me. It's easy to say no to the ugly stuff- the spangles and cheaply made and characters. It's a lot harder to say no to the good stuff. Especially when they find stuff that I really like.
My mom and I made the mistake of taking them along with us to Harmony during a recent trip to Provo, Utah. Ellery feel head over heels in love with this floral print. Anna went into raptures over the matroyshkas. And I ended up buying them both because I loved them too.
It took about an hour between dinner and bedtime last night to quickly sew both skirts. Super simple. I basically used this pattern with a large contrast band rather than the ribbon.
I love projects like this- quick, easy, supremely cute. They're happy. I'm happy.
