When you don't have a little girl to sew for... can sew something for yourself. So, I decided I was not daring enough to try for a easter dress (maybe next year), but how about a skirt. I started this a few weeks ago, but had some reservations about how it would fit. I put it down and last night came back to it, added the elastic and ruffle. It is a slightly weird length. It falls right below the knee which is an okay problem because I could go back and shorten it.

It isn't fabulous, but I think turned out cute enough to wear. What do you think? I need some confidence.


  1. I think it's cute! You need to go out and get that book - Weekend Sewing by Heather Ross. You would love it - the projects are easy, patterns are full size. Stuff for you, kids, babies, bags. Worth it!

  2. it's darling. you do need confidence, because you DEFINITELY have the talent!! wear it...i love it~

  3. Very cute. And you mentioned "cruise wear" before - I think that would look very cute with a tank for summer days. You definitely have skills with a sewing maching!
