The skirts that weren’t even a gleam in my eye this morning.

This morning I got up with no intent to sew. But then my 10 and 12 year old daughters came out of their room in skirts, which inspired insatiable skirt-envy in my 3 and 5 year olds. That’s when I remembered some extra fabric and elastic in a bin in the laundry room. Was quite pleased that the making of these sweet little skirts was complete from start to finish in ONE hour!


  1. Wow! And you already had tops to match? I am truly impressed!

  2. Sp precious!

  3. I totally agree with the “two thumbs up”! 🙂
    Did you use a pattern? I have just enough sewing skills to be dangerous, and would love to be able to just whip something up like this!

  4. Wow. I’m really impressed. I would like those skirts.

  5. Absolutely adorable!! Those bright colours look gorgeous on the girls!! 🙂 What sweethearts!

  6. So precious! And the skirts are cute, too 🙂

  7. WoW! Under one hour?! Surely you jest. It takes me that long just to thread the machine & wind the bobber. Or bobbin. Whatever.

  8. I like the choice of shoes that I see on the three-year-old! The girls look so bright and sunny in those smiles and skirts!

  9. Sooo cute! Times like this I wish I could sew.

  10. I love the skirts! They are perfect for the summertime and very easy and Simple.

  11. um – yeaah…you rock.

  12. Someday I will learn to sew.

    I fear that that someday will come long after I have a babygirl to make skirts for…

  13. Those are great! I so (sew?) look forward to having a little girl to make skirts for one day!

    Nothing quite as beautiful as a little girl in a bright, bright skirt or dress. 😀

    I bet those skirts were so very easy.. Sooner or later my little girl will grow up and we;ll have these projects.

    Your babies are darling 🙂
