Sassy Spring Skirts

In case you are wondering, after our Northern Arizona snow trip(15 inches) we came back to the desert to Spring weather in the 80’s.  Yeah-my fav weather.  It led to landscaping, cleaning closets, and pure enjoyment.  My girls were also off for a week for Spring Break.  I did manage to squeeze in some sewing time but definitely did not have any blogging time.  So, I’m baaaaaaack…
Here are some skirts I made for my 2 daughters.  This is a great pattern because it is easy and FAST.  Just imagine the fabric combos you can come up with!

This skirt has an elastic waistband that is covered with this luscious bow!  If you look closely, it even has pockets.   You will be able to see more details with this next skirt!   I purchased this fabric from Joann’s.  It is chocolate brown and Lauren mentioned she wanted more brown in her wardrobe.

Sierra just LOVES this skirt with all the different fabrics.  The floral fabric is an Amy Butler fabric called “Daisy Chain”  and the different polka dots were scraps from my stash-perfect!  It sure is Springy-looking and I am hoping she will wear it this week.  Maybe I can then capture her in it….

When I saw this pink camo fabric at Hobby Lobby, I knew Sierra would LOVE it.  As do I.  It definitely fits her personality, too.
The pattern I used is Simplicity #2258.

I have a few home dec projects and a copy-cat dress I made (Ambercrombie & Fitch inspired) to share with you.   How fun…….
