Then I thought Oh Fiddle-dee-dee I wonder if I could make skirts out of them. OK OK I didn't think that....but I COULD have!!! Anyway....I made the purchase and thought I would try it. The first one started as a window valance....
And ended up with a happy little ALMOST pre-schooler. She likes to make up her own poses when I try to take pictures of her. I am not sure where she learns this stuff....I have never seen Dora do a photo session, but whatever....she is so darn cute I just go with it.
Curtain number 2 was an even easier fix. It was an ACTUAL curtain. The green strip was a casing for a curtain rod, so I decided to use that for my elastic.
I am spoiled now and may never want to ACTUALLY hem anything ever again. It was so nice to whip up a skirt in about ten minutes and never have to think about top-stitching or hemming or measuring. It was just instant gratification....I needed a few NON-complicated projects to get my sewing mojo back I think.
Skirt number 3 I made from some thrifted vintage napkins I had laying around. I initially bought them for my etsy shop, but then I noticed that a few in the set had some slight staining issues....so waste not want not right???? I was not sure Emersyn would be ok with the VINTAGE look, but she LOVED it. She called it her cowgirl skirt and refused to take it off....cannot beat a reaction like that. It is just perfect for lounging around the plantation:)
Some of her poses are better than others....
These were by far the easiest re-fashions EVER. I know I say that every time, but SERIOUSLY this time. 30 minutes for all three skirts. For a little princess who likes to twirl and dance around....PERFECT!!!! I am actually loving this whole...BACK TO SCHOOL thing. I realize it is just pre-scool 2 days a week, but the kid needs a new wardrobe RIGHT??? ;) I am however OUT of curtains to sew up.....but AFTER ALL....TOMORROW IS ANOTHER DAY:)
