Kid’s Clothes Week is off to a slow start around here so I’m sharing something I made a few months ago but finally got photographed. Bonus, it even fits this week’s theme of Wild Things.
I actually made this skirt twice. The skirt above was made for E’s little preschool friend and our neighbor. I used the simple skirt tutorial from Dana and added four little pleats to the bottom. I had a yard of the Heather Ross unicorn print and was able to use the other half to make a similar skirt for E with three deeper pleats. Such a simple skirt but this has gotten so much use and is one of E’s favorites.
I have to admit that sometimes I feel frustrated with my sewing. It’s slow. The kids reject the things I make or it’s the wrong size. But yesterday, totally by chance, we headed down the street to preschool with so many handmade things getting used and loved. It was good motivation to keep going.
Hope to be back soon with more KCW creations. And if you’re sewing along, hope everything is going well!
