... so I made her two skirts.
That would be me. The one who struggles to stuff everything into her daughter's dresser and then decides to sew her some new clothes.
But how could I resist when I saw this cute fat quarter skirt? I mean, I couldn't not make one (or two) for Spenser. How could I not, I ask?
The skirt was super simple and whipped up in hardly any time at all and it's an inexpensive project, costing around $3 for the two fat quarters needed per skirt.
For both skirts I used random widths. For the pink monkey skirt I used three fat quarters, but only about half each of the brown and yellow. (I wanted brown. She wanted yellow. So we decided to make it brown and yellow.)
She loves them both. In fact, she strutted her stuff in the monkey skirt to church on Sunday and then again when we went on a family walk Sunday night.
And, even though her dresser cannot possibly fit any more clothes, she is requesting a dress. Who am I to refuse?!?
