My Girly's & Their Skirty's

I have been in a sewing frenzy making clothing for me wee ones.  My 4-year old is fixated on skirts/dresses so I have been going all out getting a bunch made for the spring & summer months. 

Here are just a few that I have made over the last few weeks...  


This happens to be one of my FAVORITES!  So, so cute!
I just love the ruffle on the bottom of the skirt!
Underneath this adorable skirt is a pair of skorts.

I followed the Little Ruffle Skirt Pattern tweaking it here & there.
She is able to wear a skirt & play & not have to worry about her undies being revealed.
So fantastic!

Next up...

A sweet little double layer skirt perfect for twirling.  This lovely, beauty has a ribbon drawstring that pulls up the top layer to reveal more of the bottom layer which gives it a bit more "oomph".
 So sweet!

She loves it!

The perfect twirling skirt.

I followed a pattern from Little Lizard King called the Peek-A-Boo Skirt.  I had to tweak this one a little bit as well. 

Here, Baby M is wearing the same style double layer skirt, but the photos are horrible.  I will have to try another day to get a better photo.  She just wasn't in a willing mood on this particular day.

Baby M sporting a simple peasant dress/shirt using a pattern from Leila & Ben.
Super easy & quick.  And, I love how you can really make this pattern your own by altering/cutting/piecing different fabrics.  I just opted  for plain & simple this time.  I may go back & gussy it up a bit with some fabric flowers, ruffles, and/or lace. 
It's also a bit too big for her right now.  Therefore, it looks a bit like a potato sack on her.  Oh well, she'll grow into it.

I have a few more skirts that I am working on for my girls.  I hope to have them finished by the weekend.  I really must start working on some things for my Little Man N.
I feel as if he is being shafted.

Happy Thursday!
