While this may seem trivial to some, I'm proud to say that I was able to get up and get the Little Miss to school on time every day last week! This is quite an accomplishment for me. Looking back I realize how much of a struggle it must have been for Moma to try and get me to wake up every morning. Thankfully, Little Miss M wakes up and gets ready on her own with a little thing called an alarm! I guess those things just never really worked for me. Thank you Moma for waking me up all those years and not strangling me out of frustration! Well between getting up early and the Little Miss back in school, I have so much extra time to get things done! I even pulled out the old sewing machine this week!
For Baby P's first birthday I bought an adorable little skirt from DownEast (which I paid about double or triple what I usually pay for her clothes.) Upon further inspection I realized how easy it would be to make one myself. I had some elastic leftover from an old project and found an adorable polka dot fabric remnant from Walmart for less than $2. I could have made ten skirts at this price for the price of the one I got at DownEast! It took less than an hour to come together and turned out fabulous! Next time I whip one up, I'll make up a pattern/put together instructions to share.
This is the skirt purchased from DownEast (and one of my absolute favorite pictures of Baby P). Although you can't see it in the picture, there is a thick elastic waistband. My favorite part of the skirt has to be the pleats at the hemline.
This is my version of the skirt, complete with modeling from Baby P. The pleats were so easy to replicate! Maybe I will make ten more!
She's starting quite young with the poses!!
