Well, at least one for now!

But LOTS more to come! I've been wanting to make skirts for quite some time, and they seem so easy it seemed silly to buy a pattern. But, I also wanted to have some kind of sizing "template" for when I want to make skirts for a general size (more on that in a bit!).

I originally tried the Lazy Days Skirt pattern over at Oliver + S, but to be quite honest - it is NOT meant for small kids. I originally made the above shooting for a 2T size, and going from selvedge to selvedge is just entirely too large for that. I also think the ribbon at the bottom is cute, but I like to change it up a bit too, so I added the same fabric I did on the bottom of the lemon dress I made last week.

Long story short, I think the skirt could easily work for 18mo to 2T, but it was a really good first shot and I have my own little pattern figured out now!

And what will I be doing with these LOTS more skirts? Well, selling them!

After some really amazing positive feedback I received on the dresses I posted last week (both here and on Facebook) I decided to go ahead and open an etsy shop. I'll reveal that in the coming days...but for now...back to sewing!
