The Circle Skirt

Here is the other skirt I made for Olivia. My friend Lauri taught me how to make circle skirts for the girls, but this is the first one I've tried on my own. Besides her four handsome boys, Lauri has four daughters so there's quite a lot of experience to be gleaned from her! And how she found time to share her skills with me I don't know - but I sure am glad she did:-)

I love this pattern because of how simple it is, and how little fabric it takes for someone Olivia's size. Because it's a circle, it is the BEST twirling skirt!!
I could have done a tutorial, but decided to actually accomplish the project itself. I could STILL do a tutorial, but the chances of that are slim to none.
Let's get real! This is the time in my life where we sometimes stay in pajamas all day; where breakfast starts at eight and ends at ten; where assembling a new set of Lego's is considered school, and peanut butter and crackers is considered dinner. That's just the reality.

Anyway I finished it.
She wears it.
I satiated my need to create.
I'm happy!

*sigh* come sew with me lovey! I despair of ever actually getting my machine out these days. I actually went into Kmart to get some clothes for Erin - I found 2 pairs of track pants that didn't look like they belonged on a *loose woman*. Not enough hours in the day at the moment!

Oh my goodness, your pictures are so cute. I don't know how to sew on a machine, yet, but I want to learn just so I can make that skirt. My daughter would wear one everyday. You have a great blog!
