Skirts Rule



On a winter's eve, a long one keeps you warm
On a warm summer day, skirts keep you cool
Wear the right one to compliment your form
One for every occasion; Skirts definitely rule

--Lyn Lomasi


Wanted to share the latest project I've worked on. I found this really cute pattern and fell in love. The skirts were fairly easy to make. It took about 6 different fabrics and I love all the Amy Butler line and also Moda....so needless to say the fabric was not cheap. But the skirts turned out so cute and the girls love them! I still need to finish Bella's. They are also unique, not something you can find at Target. (Although I love Target!) The cost was about $15 in fabric and about 3 hours of my time. I've been working on some other fun projects and plan on posting pics soon.

Brooklyn and Bronwyn have been wanting to make a vintage button bracelet. On Saturday we were off to Confetti's and they went through the bathtub of buttons and picked out some for their bracelets. Turned out pretty cute!
I loved this photo. I savor these moments!

One of these days I'll be able to part with some of my vintage buttons. I've been saying that for six years now....
