Ella's New Skirt

I don't think I have ever dedicated a post to sewing, but I was pretty proud of myself with this skirt. This is the first thing I have made without a pattern! (Well I kind of used a shorts pattern, but the skirt part was all on my own!) You might see pictures of Ella in a few of these skirts this summer. I just think it so cute and so easy! And you can tell that Ella loves it too. All she wants to wear are "beautiful dresses" and "ballerina skirts"

  3. the fabric is a hancock special! murray asked if i could make him a pair of pants out of it. i told him if he wanted an elastic waist band and no pockets i definitely could.

    i did not use the serger. just the good ole' zig zag stitch.
