Playing Princess


I agree with DeLynne 100% - sewing for our own families is so rewarding! I sat in my sewing room last week and saw my fabric bin from across the room. Just a corner of this darling pink plaid patterned fabric was sticking out and I had instant visions of all the fun things I could come up with. With nothing else to sew and all the kids in bed, I whipped up the most adorable pleated skirt and matching ruched shirt for my Chickadee in no time. This was seriously one of the most pain free and simple things I've ever sewn -and that is coming from someone who learned how to sew by phone tutorials from my mom. So I promise, it can't be hard!

I admired my handiwork all night but was nervous for the unveiling to my 3 going on 13 year old. Can anyone else relate? She looked at it, walked in circles around it, grinned and then immediately proceeded to take off her jammies so she could put it on. Score! She pranced around at church in her new outfit and had even more fun posing for the camera. And yes girls, it passes the 'twirl' test! The proof is in the pudding......Enjoy!

The PDF tutorial will be available on our etsy site next week!

Janet! That is so cute, and the photos are so adorable! I hope we get the chance to see it ourselves when we're there for Nate's Basic graduation!

Hi! I LOVE your stuff! =)

I was just looking for this pattern in your etsy shop, but I didn't see it. If you re-list it would you mind letting me know?

Thanks! =)
