New Twirly Skirits!

Haley's Twirly Skirt!

I took my daughters to the fabric store over the weekend and had them each pick out the fabric they liked most for a new skirt.  Here is what Haley picked.  It actually turned out really cute.  She reminds me of a little Senorita!  

     Here is my little Jacob patiently watching and begging for his turn to say cheese.  He is still in his pjs, but still super cute!  It really is only 10 am so it is kind of ok that he is still in his pajamas. :)

      When Kylie came home from school she quickly put her skirt on too.  She has always been great at coordinating color.  She has been dressing herself since she was 2 and has always managed to have everything match and look well together.  Her skirt is a great representation of her matching ability.  She picked this fabric out and put it in this order with no help.  When she sets her mind on something there is not much arguing.  She is becoming such a young lady, she didn't even run around the yard twirling this time.  Kind of made me sad.

     This is one of my favorite skirt patterns.  It is so easy to make and so fun for the girls to wear.  I got this pattern from the book Little Girls, Big Style.  I love this book!  It truly is the only one I use for making clothes for my girls.  I don't have much confidence in my clothes making abilities and this book is written so well I can easily walk myself through any of the patterns.  Definitely a must have book if you are interested in learning how to make clothes or if you already know how and want some more cute patterns!
