Picnic Parade Skirt

Q:  Does Haley need a new skirt?

A:  No, but I made her one anyway.

Notice her wand

And actually – she could use some new school clothes – so maybe the answer should be yes.  Plus, as Renee pointed out, at some point this little girl of mine is not going to want to wear mama-made clothes – so I should take advantage of it while I can!

I am in love with the prints from Picnic Parade by Jenean Morrison. They are cheery and bright – and the scale is perfect too! The pattern is the Analise patchwork skirt by Sandi Henderson. It is a perfect twirl skirt, wouldn’t you say? (Haley didn’t want me to add the bottom ruffle. That is the only change I made as far as the pattern is concerned.)  I love that some of the rectangles that make up the tiers of the skirt are sewn horizontally while others are placed vertically – and they vary size.  That sounds more complicated than it is.   🙂    After the pieces were cut out, it went together very quickly.

Next on the list is a pair (or two) of Pajama pants – they were supposed to be finished for Christmas last year…..
