SnOwFlaKe sKirTs

This winter I overcame a fear. I sewed. I don't sew. I will work on quilts, but they don't have to fit anyone! Sewing a skirt was a very BIG step for me, though you probably don't understand unless you had Mrs. X for sewing and she traumatized you. I won't go into details, but it has been many many years since I have attempted a sewing project. Plus, I really don't come by it naturally. Okay, okay, enough about me. What about these amazing beautiful girls? These are my two nieces. Roxy and Ruthy. I just love how beautiful they look, and I wish I was closer to them. The skirts were really fun to make, I found a few ideas on line and mooched some inspiration from some talented friends. My fabulous mother in law also came down over Thanksgiving and helped me get started and troubleshoot. So, these skirts are full of flaws, but who cares? When you put 'em on beautiful girls, they work just fine. My favorite picture is Roxy dancing. That is all I wanted, a little girl to dance in a twirly-whirly snowflake skirt!! Oh ya, and picking out the fabric was really fun!

I can't believe you sewed those. I am seriously impressed. Sewing clothes is on my list of life long goals, good work.
