I wanted to make something special for my 5 year old's best friend's birthday. Which is today. So, of course, I started last night. I would have loved to make the two layer skirt but figured I'd better go with the basic one. You know, seeing as I needed it for today. I did take Dana's suggestion and sewed around the hem twice-an easy special little touch. I wish I had taken her advice for creating the waistband. Oh well, live and learn, mine was a little too small and although the elastic fit, it was a tight squeeze.
I started last night and finished this morning. And that's was with the kids all around and my son thinking that pressing the sewing machine pedal while I'm sewing is a new, fun, fun game.
I had the fabric in my stash and I had gotten it on sale so another quick, easy and cute project!
I'm definitely going to make some more of these for the girls!
