Oh yeah, and the skirt too! (Get it?)
How did I accomplish this feat of complete and utter cuteness? That's a question to ask your parents. Ohh you mean the skirt? (Sorry, I can't help myself!)
I followed this pattern:
It's a super simple, straightforward set of instructions from Noodles and Milk.
I don't have to tell you how much Carly loves it. It definitely passes her fashion test. For any piece of clothing to be deemed acceptable and worthy, it must meet the following criteria:
The pattern came in PDF format, so no waiting, and the thing I love most was no pattern pieces to cut! I hate cutting and pinning those floaty things. I love that I can basically memorize the fabric measurements for each piece, and if I'm out and about and see some really cute fabric, I'll know right then and there how much to buy if I want to make this skirt again!I already made a second one for fall out of corduroy. The thicker fabric actually made the gathering easier, I was surprised. I'll get photos asap!
Sabrina, the designer behind Noodles and Milk, has two other cute patterns that I want to try next:
Cutest model ever!
I'll probably wait until next spring to try the other two, (she has a discount for buying multiple patterns!) but that dress would look really cute in coordinating corduroys and a turtleneck underneath! That's what I love about patterns like these. You can alter them however you'd like for your child. That's handy for me because Carly fits a 3T up top but 4-5T on her legs! This way I can make things longer if I need to.
On to the giveaway!
