Pink Skirt Day

I'm not trying to start a National Day of anything, but at our house, it was Pink Corduroy Skirt Day, as I whipped out two of them for Bella and Daisy.


They're both made out of this darling corduroy, multicolor polka dots with the random ladybug scattered here and there. I didn't use a pattern; instead I just cut a half circle with the right waist measure and the right length. Daisy's waist is elastic, and Bella has an invisible zipper in the back seam. So simple: a narrow machine hem and you're out of the sewing room!



Back to the book and Boy Scout popcorn now.

A perfectly pink skirt. My daughter loves everything pink and the polka dots would just be the icing on the cake. Very pretty!

That's EXACTLY how I used to eat: with a book propped up in front of me. I still do when no one's around... :)

Could you draw a picture of what that looks like? (the half circle with a waist) My girls would love more simple skirts (so I would make them faster and more frequently). :O)

Daisy looks too cute in her new skirt and that darling sweater.

blessings to you this day ...

I just found your blog this weekend, but I have loved reading it. The care and attention to detail you bring to everyday things, and the enjoyment you get out of it, is contageous. I'm also enjoying seeing your relationship with your children as individuals whom you not only love, but deeply value and respect. It's wonderful.

And that pink skirt is just too cute!

Perhaps we need a National Day for pink skirts - it sounds great to me! There is nothing like a swirlie-twirlie-girlie skirt! How fun!

What a sweet skirt! Your DD reminds me of someone...maybe my cousin Nancy. But she is a sweetheart!
