Can’t believe how quickly it arrived, but it is time for KCW, the summer edition. I wasn’t sure if I was going to participate this time around, considering it is already the middle of July and I thought my kids would have all the summer clothes they needed by now. WRONG, the master procastinator/ horrible time manager strikes again! So, summer basics it is! Most of my planned projects (if I manage to fit them all in) are shorts for the kids, but this first one is actually a present for Finnley’s BFF Annabelle. Annabelle just turned 3 it is going through a major princess faze. She lives in dresses, and only dresses that she deems princess worthy. Not sure this skirt fits the bill, but I am hoping pink and ruffles will win this little girl over!
Loving this sweet little skirt! Thinking I need to see if I have enough fabric to make one for Finnley! Originally I envisioned pink ombre using voile so the final skirt would be more floaty and a little bit less stiff, but the only fabric that I could find in 3 shades of pink was quilting cotton solids. Would like to try it with voile in the future but I am still pretty happy with how it turned out. I used this tutorial to help me figure out measurements and it came together really quickly.
The one change I will probably make next time is I will make the ruffle layers a little bit longer. I don’t love how you can see the connector pieces and wish that the ruffles overlapped slightly.
Hopefully I will have some shorts for my little man to show in the next day or two!
