My Ruffled Skirt

The sewing bug took over and I made Emma this skirt and decorated a t-shirt to go with it, from some of my stash of fabrics. I couldn't even wait for the patterns to come in, so I just made up the skirt pattern myself and managed to re-thread my serger, no small feat, after 7 years....lol.




I made the flowers on the shirt by tearing strips of fabric and sewing them into a spiral pattern. This was such a fun and rewarding project and was worn with great delight!

Now, back to finish the cleaning, after this unscheduled interruption. ;)
