Look what I made (sort of)!

Audrey has recently decided that she will only wear dresses or skirts.  Not just any skirt mind you, but twirly skirts.  Straight skirts are a huge no-no and shorts are only to be worn under skirts and dresses so no one can see your panties when you're twirling around in the middle of the supermarket. So I decided that I would call my mom and ask her if she would help me make Ms. Prissy some twirly skirts.  I went to Hobby Lobby yesterday and picked up some fabrics and today we made this:

And just so you can see how twirly it is:
I think it turned out pretty cute and Audrey is thrilled with it. I'll be honest with you. Pretty much all I did was pick out the fabric, measure and then gather it.  My mom did the cutting and actual sewing. I hate cutting fabric because I cannot cut a straight line worth a flip.  We actually started on another one, but then the kids were getting antsy so I brought them home.  I'm crossing my fingers that this one will hold my little girly-girl over for a little while until I can finish the other skirt and buy more fabric for other ones. Oh, and if any of you creative ones have suggestions for tops please let me know. I have a lot of fabric left over so I'm kind of thinking of maybe an initial tee, but I'm not sure.
