About a month ago, I started making a bunch of skirts for E with the hopes that spring would soon be here, and that we could finally make a serious effort to start potty-training. Well hurrah, hooray! Both have finally come!
Here are a few of the skirts I've made. These whipped up very quickly, especially with my ruffler foot. ;)
Here is E's favorite, mostly because it looks like the one that her plush Minnie Mouse wears. It was the quickest and easiest to make, mostly because I just did a quick rolled hem on the bottom and a wide band for elastic casing at the top.
This is not an uncommon look nowadays:
This skirt was supposed to be part of her birthday outfit, and I even had a matching "3" applique shirt embroidered by Kenzie Kouture, but of course, when the actual day came, E insisted on wearing the Minnie skirt. *sigh*
I did, however, manage to get her to wear the complete outfit to school one day, so here's a pic I managed to snap as she tore around the house like a maniac. Sorry for the slight blur. She's fast.
This is probably my favorite skirt so far. I love the skull fabric! I think I also realized after making this one that I prefer the drop-waist style.
I actually made this skirt specifically for E's 3-year-old photo shoot in Deep Ellum with our favorite photographer. I also commissioned another embroidered shirt from Kenzie Kouture to match, this time with heart & crossbones. Here is my big girl, in her "model" pose. ;)
And I can't resist including this shot of T and I, with our monkey:
Now that we are potty-training full force, I'm anticipating a lot more skirts and dresses for spring and summer!
