Floral skirt

After sewing the bandana for Georgia, I went about preparing to sew her a skirt. She likes to wear skirts and dresses so much these days that she refuses to wear her shorts and pants. She said that girls should wear skirts and dresses and wearing shorts and pants would turn her into a boy!!! That's so funny!!! Well of course I am more than willing to make her more skirts and dresses and have bought a couple of Japanese books on children's clothes just to make her more!!! I love those Japanese sewing books. The works are so simple, zen and beautiful!

This skirt is from McCall's pattern M4867, B pattern. I had such a hard time making it!!! I was literally having a cow everytime I realised that I had sewn incorrectly! I also happened to cut out the wrong patterns and thus wasted a bit of the fabric. Then I must have stitch and unstitched a thousand times for the many mistakes that I had made!!! Finally, after the ordeal and resizing (as Georgia is quite a petite girl), the skirt is completed. With many of my brains cells dead OF COURSE!!! Haha!!!



Though it's not perfect, I'm sure with more practise I'll be near!!!

Thank you Salihan! Sometimes it's hard to get Georgia to model my stuff as she has her moods too!
