I just got this great new skirt pattern in the store so I had to give it a try.
First I went shopping. It was tough to pick my fabrics, but I finally decided to go with a Christmas-ish theme.
Then, with just a little snip snip here and a stitch stitch there, I had 11 bias bound petals.
Throw in a few more snips and stitched and you end up with an adorable little girls skirt!
Adorable I say! Just look at those petals.
How can you NOT love this skirt?
I loved the skirt so much I wanted to put it on display but people get weird when you leave half-clad dress forms laying around the shop so I needed a top to go with it.
After a quick trip to target and a little finagling with ribbon I had this cute Christmas tree blouse.
Put them together and……..
A cute and easy little holiday outfit!
How precious is that?
Go make one!
And, if you need some help, I will be offering the petal skirt class in the New Year!
Mark your calendars, you’re not gona wana miss this one!
