So, for a while, we stuck with knits or things with elastic waists so I could just make a small opening, reduce the elastic and sew it back up. Then one day in a craft store, they found a fabric they liked and asked me to just make them a dress....
I hadn't made clothes since college, so I started simple and have gone on from there. Jean skirts were still a problem. They wanted to wear them but in order for them to be long enough, they were always too big in the waist. Or, if they fit in the waist, well, lets just say even the Texas Cheerleaders wouldn't wear them that short.
Enter, the Petal Skirt. My girls and I have had a lot of fun designing these skirts. Working with quilt scraps, remnants and fat quarters, we sit on the floor and choose different color combinations for each skirt we find at thrift stores.
What do you think?
I took several to a few craft shows in December and only have a few left (yeah!). They are now available in my new etsy store: HarperNCo.
Peace be with you,
