My New Favorite Skirt

Last week I helped my friend, Katie, sew a beautiful blue circle skirt. I had to make one for myself with the most gorgeous fabric! It's the prettiest Amy Butler sheet set that I bought on clearance at Bed Bath and Beyond (plus I used a 20% off coupon, which don't actually expire btw).

Note the less awkward pictures once Ansley is around. :)

I'm planning to make Ansley a matching dress, but we won't have to wear them at the same time, all the time. ;) Maybe I'll make a second one, since it's just that awesome. Then I can wear one while the other is being washed. (Does anyone else buy multiples of clothes they like that fit well?)

Even though I have enough skirts, I might need to make more. . . .

  3. You're in the middle of the road?! Well, it is North Dakota, so maybe not much traffic...but still :). And I guess it makes for nice photography :). Gorgeous skirt, talented mom, and beautiful picture of mom and Ansley!
