All I Got Done This Weekend Was This Cute Skirt

16 comments
We had my granddaughter Allison from Thurs-Sunday. She was so much fun but so busy, too. It is nice to have help from some of my kids and husband. I have to say I don't know how I raised 8.
Saturday I had a few things to do at work so I took Allison with me. Here she is sitting primly at my desk. The expression on her face makes me laugh.
The only thing I got done in 4 days was this little skirt I made for Allison. Shelbie and I purchased the ruffle fabric when we were at quilt market in May. It is sold online, too, at the ruffle fabric website. The skirt was so easy. I measured how long I needed it on Allison and cut it 32" wide. Then I gathered the top and used my double needle to stitch the fabric to the elastic waistband. After that there was just one seam down the back. No hemming. Imagine that.
I have a few different colors of the ruffle fabric. I think little pants for Allison made from ruffle fabric would be cute. I may have to do that next time.
This is usually my view of Allison since as a nearly 2 year old she seems to have unlimited energy. We took her to church with us in her little skirt. That was something!

Absolutely adorable! The skirt is so sweet and those shiny little shoes! I give her an A+ for fashion! I'll bet it was interesting being at church with a nearly 2 year old. :-)

Nanette, she looks just like your pictures when you were young. Such a cutie! I've been hearing all about the ruffle fabric presented at Market. Love the skirt.

Oh I love that expression! She looks so grown up...like she should have that binky in her designer handbag instead of clipped to her shirt ;-)
Thanks for the ruffle fabric reminder. I never did get any.

That skirt is just as cute as it can be, and so is Allison! I know what you mean about children though, there is a reason they are born to younger women!

Cute skirt! Cute Allison too! She is getting so big. I hardly recognized her.

That is a funny expression on her face at the desk, kids are so hilarious sometimes.

I finished a skirt over the weekend too, but it only had a couple of flounces and no polka dots :)
