Ms. Dana has a tutorial for a SUPER simple skirt. She said in a recent post that it took her 12 minutes to make one. WAIT, 12 MINUTES!?! Okay, so I am totally not there yet but hopefully, one day,
I will be.
Anyway, her original tutorial for the simple skirt is what guided me to make one for Our G and later myself. It is DEFINITELY as simple as it sounds and looks. I made Our G's from some material I got from Sugar Creek Bedding called Gypsy Bandana. It was a MUST have!! Here is Our G and her skirt:
After I made G her skirt I wanted to make me one but lacked the fabric. My GREAT Momma gave me a gift of $20 under one condition; that I buy ME some fabric. Not G, Not KK, Not J, Not My Love, NO ONE but me. This was SUPER hard to do. First of all, I LIVE to make things for my family. I LOVE to make things for my family. Add to that the fact that I have never picked out fabric for myself and I was worried. It WAS hard not to buy for my kids and it DID take me about 30 minutes to decide upon one fabric. But, eventually, I did. It looks like colorful grass. I got it from Joann's and I am unsure of its official name but I have 2 shirts that match it and THAT is the important thing. I am wearing it this Sunday to church and am VERY excited about it. Along with VERY thankful to my Momma for making me do something for myself. Here is a pic of my skirt:
Many more skirts to come. I am still planning on doing my first tute on a pillow and I am almost finished with Our KK's Peasant Shirt. Next post will be about my VERY FIRST sale of a dress!!! YAY!! Till' then, Stay Inspired!!
