a simple skirt for maeve and the cousins

i get so much inspiration from the sewing blogs in blogland.  i especially love MADE.  dana has a ton of amazing tutorials.  i have read them all.  hadn't actually done any.  until now.

the simple skirt.  i like tutorials that contain the word *simple*.  off to a great start!

it really was simple!  she even gives you instructions for a double layered skirt for those of you who are daring.

it worked!  i made the simple skirt for my 5-year-old daughter maeve with a an adorable remnant i found at my local jo-ann's.  it was already cut at the perfect size; i straightened the edges and started sewing.  not too girly, light and airy, with kind of a slub texture.

i was so happy with how it turned out, i made three more so the cousins could match (luckily jo-ann's had more on the bolt).  only down poor ethan, no skirt for him.  :(

i used store-bought double fold bias tape for the bottom hem in a dark gray, pink, and orange.

she walked out on the dock with her hands behind her back like cute!

my nieces...they loved their skirts (whew!)
