My good friend Mel and I are having our first sewing night this Thursday and I am SOOO excited! It's something we are going to do quarterly, so 4 times a year. Our first project is a reversible skirt for the girls. Because I'm miss cheapy pants and didn't want to buy a pattern, I decided to make a "trial" skirt this morning. You know, just to make sure that what I had in my head would make sense (and work) when teaching it. I had one kink, but other than that all went well. I am so excited to make some more!
Here's the end result, a fun western skirt for Boo (she calls it her yee-haw skirt) that's reversible. It's a little big, but not too much. So I guess she'll get 2 summers out of it! I am trying to decide if I should applique a tee or tank top with a rodeo bronco, paisley, etc. We'll see.
Notice the grumpy face - I had to bribe her with a sucker to get her to put on the skirt.
