Sewing is therapy for me. I hoard fabric, patterns, notions, and spend more time shopping for fabric than I care to admit...

New Look 6288--more unselfish sewing....


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.  


New Look Pattern 6288 Misses' Pull on Knit Skirts

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!
