I got to make some skirts! I have been tagging skirt tutorials in my google reader for "one day." Since I have a boy I always think "maybe" when I see a skirt or dress pattern that catches my eye. Well I finally got to make my first skirt and I didn't just make one, I made three!! I made them for PB's friends from school. He has triplets in his class and their birthday is coming up.
Their Mom asked me if I knew someone who monogrammed. Luckily I did not and I got to do some applique on shirts and make them matching skirts. I have an applique tutorial here.
Mom even had me make some quick small versions of the skirts for the dolls. What a great idea! The fabric is seersucker. I never used that before and it was easy to sew with.
I followed Dana from MADE's Simple Skirt Tutorial. It was just as it says, simple. These skirts came together very quickly and her tutorial is amazing of course.
I got a little taste for sewing for a girl. It was pretty fun. I think I need to be more adventurous with sewing for PB. I really want to dive into making him some clothes now. And maybe matching outfits for PB and nephew :)
