I hope a wonderful, long weekend was had by all! It was a busy one for us -- full of thoughts of my brother and others who serve and have served, with many ups and downs, lots of gardening for this (sun-burned) Mama, and a nasty virus sweeping through my poor kiddos. Because of the sleepless nights and daytime tending to that comes with sick children, I am feeling a bit under the weather myself right now. I am however still very excited to show you all --
My first sewn garment! Finally!!!
Garment sewing, especially the oh-so-cute-little-girl-kind, has been on my to-do list since I began to sew. I have purchased many cuts of fabrics and sewing books with this is mind, but it just never made it to the top of my list. Well, until last week...
I have for you the Bo Peep Skirt from Seams to Me!
The pattern was a great first choice and came together pretty quickly. My favorite part is this fun ruffle detail along each side of the skirt. Isn't it sweet!?
I am so happy I took an afternoon to give it a go. It was wonderful, exciting, and so fulfilling to be able to cross this off my list. The bonus -- Haila LOVES her new skirt!
Hooray for that!!!
I already began dreaming up several variations for this skirt design that you're likely to see here very soon. This one is going to be my first entry in Skirt Week 2011 with Crafter Hours! Wish me luck!!!
