Skirt Sew Along

I participated in Randi’s Skirt Sew-Along, although I was a day late!  It was really fun to sew something for myself.  Thanks Randi!

When I saw Randi’s post I knew I wanted to participate.  But when it came down to picking out the fabric that was hard!  She has so many beautiful fabrics to choose from in her shop

With a some help from my sister Trisha I picked out Joel Dewberry’s Dogwood Bloom in pink from his Modern Meadow Collection.

Here’s the final result.   IMG_9046

Makes me want to try sewing more for myself.  This was a pretty simple pattern.  I was able to cut the pieces with my rotary cutter and ruler following the dimensions on the pattern.  Something I’m more comfortable with, rather than using pattern pieces. And it came together very nicely.

Thanks Trisha for helping me pick out the fabric! You did good!

Very, VERY cute! I'll have to try this pattern once my baby is born...I'm a little too large at the moment to be making myself any skirts:)

Such cute fabric. Of course, it looks great on such a cute lady! :) Love that there was no pattern to follow. Hmmm, Aubrey may have some new skirts in her future!
