I made a skirt for Brooke. If I had ten uninterrupted minutes to sew it, I'd tell you that's how long it took. Since I have four children, I don't have ten uninterrupted minutes, so it took more like thirty.
I used this ruffle fabric, and knit elastic. In a perfect world I would have used purple thread, then my wonky lines wouldn't be so noticeable. But it's not a perfect world, it's a world where all my thread is in storage and I happened to have this yellow from a sewing project I did for church. Brooke thought it was cool though, she put it on and said, "I love it!! It's like a Santa belt!" She's the eternal optimist. Obviously that seam goes in the back, but whatev.
And here she is with her best pose. Future model for sure.
PS. I have no idea why she felt the need to tuck her shirt in, she's got a style all her own. :)
