Vintage Rose Flirty Skirt

I made my daughter an adorable layered skirt.  Each layer has a dropped gathered waist…big accomplishment for me seeing this was my first time gathering!  The top layer is a vintage rose floral pattern and the bottom layer is a dark and light pink stripe.  I love the fabrics together, and the skirt is super cute, but too short for my princess.

Live and learn.

I bought lots of different fabric to make skirts, so more are definitely on the horizon.

More Little Girl Dresses

My little princess is in hog heaven with all these new dresses.  I just love this pattern, and now that I am comfortable making the pattern, I’ve changed it up just a bit to better fit Ellie.

Little Girl Dress

I bought the sweetest little girl dress pattern from Frog Legs and Ponytails called the Caroline Dress.  Last weekend my  mom came to visit, and I took the opportunity to get some sewing lessons from her.  My mom is a great sewer, and to be honest, I don’t have the patience for garment sewing…I much prefer quilting.  Anyway, with my confidence growing I was determined to complete this dress to prove to myself that I indeed can sew a garment.

While Steve slept in for Father’s Day, I decided that this morning would be the morning I would attempt to make this dress–all by myself.  Three hours later, much to the delight of my little princess Ellie, I actually completed this dress, and I think it looks awesome!!!

I hope I made my mom proud! 🙂
