Need a quick project?
Dana was right, this is the simplest skirt on earth.
I used her tutorial to draft up my basic pattern but took a little liberty with the waistband. I don't have any wide elastic but I do have lots of tee shirts that need recycled. It's the hazard of being married to a youth pastor. Youth groups make tee shirts for everything.
In lieu of a wide elastic waist I opted for the almost as easy fold over yoga style waist. I love this because although this skirt was made to fit 2T measurements I think it would fit well into the 4T range and possibly beyond.
The Bug loved modeling this one so much that I had to promise to make her one of her own. And I did. In the hour she was at Wednesday night church. An hour. Start to finish.
That's what I'm talking about.
And just in case you were wondering why I cropped my lovely daughter's head out of the above photos, I leave you with the following series of photo session outtakes (i.e. pretty much every single shot).
Here I said, "Pose for me! Look pretty!"
And she mimics a bird? Really?
I guess birds are pretty, but this pose? Not so much.
Then, "Smile! Say cheese!"
Mmm hmm. . .
Then she's mad. I've somehow offended her by asking her to stand by the flowers.
Oh wait, FINALLY a genuine smile!
Directly into total cheese fest.
And she's gone.
And her shirt itches.
O.k., this one holds promise there might be a real smile coming. . . wait for it. . .
Nope. False alarm.
I will never win an award for best blog photography if this goober is all I have to work with.
And so, I chop off her head.
No offense sweet girl, it had to be done.
