A friend of mine has a 4-year old daughter who has suddenly decided that she will no longer wear pants. She insists that she is a girl and that girls only wear dresses and skirts. My friend, Amber, then came to me with some fabric asking if I would make Lucia some skirts. I did not photography the first two that I made, although the first one, in blue and white, turned out pretty cute. The third one however was by far my favorite. I had found this tutorial several months ago for a twirly skirt and have been wanting to do one. So I used this green print that Amber had provided along with a blue for contrast to put one together. When I first saw the green print I was not to taken with it but once I completed the skirt I was in love with it. I've now decided I need to get some to make my Sarah one.
When I took the skirt over to Amber on Thursday afternoon I was not at all surprised to learn that she had gotten more fabric and not only wanted another twirly skirt for Lucia but one for her daughter Natalia as well. I feel in love with the fabric right away and was disappointed when she told me that she had purchased the last of it.
Yesterday I went to another Jo-ann location to find the contrasting pink and was thrilled to find that this store had 4-yards of the blue floral. HURRAY!!!!! So I now have enough to make both Ivy and Sarah a twirly skirt as well as a dress.
I completed Amber's two skirts last night and left them on her door this morning on my way to church. I hope she is pleased witht hem.
