So I have two beautiful daughters. One lives close by and has given me (well not given, but you know what I mean) the two most awesome grandsons! One lives far away and I've sewn up projects for her before but not as many as for Katy, or the DD that lives closer. I decided to do something about that. We went to a home party that sells women's clothing and she loved the maxi skirts. I looked at the simple design and the fabric quality and thought that I can make her at least 4 of those with the price we paid for one.
So, being the good momma I try to be, I pulled out this pattern and let her forage through my stash and she picked three fabrics that I am glad she drooled over.
Isn't she beautiful? And look at that fabric! This was a piece I purchased from Fabric.com. I hesitated and told her she could have it only if she promised to love it as much as I do. She quickly agreed. Whew!
She's quite a bit shorter than I am so I lopped about 3 inches off the length.
There are so many pretty colors in this skirt that she can wear it with almost anything!
Version 2 is this great print from Girl Charlee. I made a tunic from it that I have never blogged about. I really should do that since I just love it.
This knit had a more cotton-y feel than the first skirt did.
I also made a third skirt that we didn't photograph since this little fella decided he needed his mommy.
This is a great skirt for a beginner or someone new to knits. It stitches up very quickly and look how cute it turns out!
Thanks for reading!
