Anyway, since Dana from MADE posted her tutorial for The Simple Skirt, I knew I wanted to make a few for Haley. I've had 1/2 yard of Michael Miller's Tweet Tweet fabric waiting to be made into something, and this seemed like the perfect opportunity.
I made a pattern from a skirt Haley already has and then cut 2 different lengths from the fabric to create a double-tiered skirt. I made the skirt more flared than Dana's version - I love it!
This second one was made with The Simple Skirt tutorial as well. If you haven't noticed by now, I'm obsessed with turquoise and brown so of course there had to be at least one turquoise and brown skirt.
This one is a single tier skirt lined with bias tape for the binding on the bottom. It was so easy to make. Between cutting out the fabric and sewing together, I don't think this took more than 30 minutes to put together. That's my kind of project! It's nice to be able to run upstairs while both kids are napping and sew something real quick.
Please ignore my daughter's crazy hair, she inherited her Mama's curls and they can't be contained :)
I've also been sewing a few pairs of shorts for Haley - both play shorts and pj shorts since the summer heat is starting early here in Tennessee. I'll have to post those soon, and possibly a tutorial with them!
