Skirts X3

Not exactly sure how it happened, but 4 days before the Drive-In I was convinced to make matching skirts for my girls and oldest niece. Like I said, the details of how and why are fuzzy. Did my oldest ask? Did I offer? Hmmmm. No matter, really. I thought it would be darling and my oldest was so excited about being "same same" there was no way I was going to say, "No." My only regret, and it's minor, is letting my daughter have total control over choosing the fabric. She's 4. She likes pink. And glitter. And ponies, kitties, cupcakes, faeries, and butterflies. You get the idea.

Not exactly the look I would have chosen. But, hey, I'm not wearing it.

These are the next skirts I plan to make. Going to experiment with some pockets this time.

Thought about creating a gathered skirt tutorial for you all. But really, I'm no seamstress and there are some great tutorials already out there. Click here, here and here.

See you on Monday for the RAINBOW challenge!

That pompom fringe is fabulous! I also like how the red, red, rickrack looks with the sweet cherry fabric.

These skirts are great!!! I love making skirts-they are so much fun. I just got up my google reader account. Love it! It is great!

I have never made a skirt....yet. The cherry fabric will make the most fabulous skirt ever!!!! =) I am so into cherries & my daughter is having a cherry birthday party next month. I took a peek at the tutorials, thanks for the ideas. You should still do a tutorial...maybe a simple skirt with trim {for someone like me who needs a basic one}

I want to join in on the muffin tin fun, but I don't know if I will make it to the store{we are very out of food} to post by tomorrow...so maybe next week's.
