Look Ma – I Made Two Skirts!

Simple Skirt

Simple Skirt

 

So, here they are. The two skirts that were in the running for the ladybug’s Book Themed Birthday party. From photos earlier this week, you can see that the second one pictured won out, but I love them both. These are the first skirts that I have sewn for her, and they were EASY! It’s under the Simple Skirt tutorial on the site below. It’s one of my favorite patterns now for skirts for the girls! 

I found the tutorial here:

MADE (or Dana-Made-It)

Once again, I really have to highlight the fact that I have no idea what I’m doing and follow the instructions given on blogs and YouTube tutorials to the ‘t’ I’m hoping that one of these days I can pretend to be all Martha Stewart-ish (albeit with a tan) and post up one of my very own tutorials on something that I have perfected.

Let me know what you guys think!

    These are adorable! I just do not have the (whatever it is) for sewing. I have made some things, but only because I had to, I just don’t enjoy it. One of my best friends can sew up a storm, so I let her be the specialist at that, happily! I like to play with my paints. These really are so very cute, and I love the fabric that you found to make them with.

    Best wishes,

      Miranda, I’m that way with web design. I know that I am creative, and I know what I want, I just don’t have the patience to sit and learn how to figure stuff out properly. I mostly started sewing from necessity (the twins needed cloth diapers and well, they can be expensive to start with) so I found a free pattern and went to work. So far, so good. Thanks so much for stopping by!

      I’m starting to think that I have a slight love for them too. Most of the fabric that I picked was owl themed, and now, well it can’t go to waste!

      That would require way more fabric than this Houseful holds at the moment. Please hold.

      Thanks Kim! I’m going to try to make your party skirt later this month, and I hope you don’t mind if I also borrow your monthly to do list posting format. I LOVE it and it’s easier than trying to break stuff down daily. I shudder at the thought.

    CUTE!! I love the owl skirt especially. I have trouble sewing a button so this is most impressive to me. Found you from the spicy weekend blog hop btw.

      Thanks Vapid Vixen. I still can’t sew buttons on items with a machine, but I can do a mean stitch with just needle and thread – it still looks homely though.

      I enjoyed finding blogs through the Spicy Weekend Hop. HOpe you stop by again.
