A Simple Girly Skirt!

Hi to all my Simply Sewing 101 girl's. Our October class will be Oct. 13th and we are making these adorable Girly Skirts. I hope you like them. We will be learning how to make an elastic casing and how to gather the skirt. These are things we haven't done before. I have a quick and easy method to make your gathering so much easier. The ric-rac on the skirt is optional and you can make this skirt ranging from sizes 6 months up to 10 years. You won't want to stop at just one, guarentee you will be making more for gifts. It just takes 2 different fabrics. If you haven't got your supply list yet, either call me or e-mail( me and I will get that to you. This is the skirt I made for little Miss M for her birthday. I got the little t-shirt at Old Navy and just appliqued(using my scraps) a few simple circles and added a bow and a button. This is just a bonus if you want to do one. This was the 12 - 18 months size. In addition to the skirt set I added some white leggings with lace on the bottom and some cute pink ballerina flats. It is the most adorable little outfit. I can't wait to see her in it. It's all about the accessories, don't you think?

This is for Karas Rae, it is the size 5. I haven't finished her shirt yet, but it will be finished in time for class so you can get another idea what to do on yours if you choose. Bring a your scraps and embellishments that night. Can't wait to see you there. Happy Sewing, Shannon
