Dinoskirt

Remember the girl's dinosaur pants? I promised her a skirt, too, when it got warmer. This is the second skirt of the week, made the same way as the first.


She likes it even better than the pink flowery one. The girl loves color--the more, the better, all in the same outfit, please! I love how easy and quick it is to make a skirt for a three-year-old. It's so absolutely satisfying to take a flat piece of fabric, cut a rectangle, and with a bit of sewing and some elastic, have a garment just a short time later. And since this skirt used less than a half-yard of fabric, it cost about a dollar. (Love that bargain loft!)

I'm linking up with the creative folk here.

It is fun to make clothes for little girls. Wait until she says "Mom, I want you to make my prom dress". That becomes fun since you get to play with lovely luxurious fabrics. (and the panic that comes when you start to cut them since they cost you so much!) I made three or four prom dresses for my girls and it was an adventure.

These are so cute! I think this morning I'll clean a space to sew. Then maybe this afternoon I'll be able to sew! Did you get this fabric at Lorraines fabric up north? I haven't been there in years but am feeling a trip coming on soon!!

I don't know why more people don't sew, especially for little girls - skirts like these are so easy, and so much nicer than anything you can buy in the shops.

oh yeah, like that - a picture of the skirt worn but her face not in the photo. I just finished commenting on this on the previous post! It's dead cute. Must make skirts for Alice!
