Mommy Daughter Maxi Skirts



 I made myself a red, gathered maxi skirt this past week and had enough fabric to make a little maxi skirt for my daughter. She LOVED it! I had her try it on for size yesterday and I could hardly get her to take it off so I could finish stitching it up! My skirt is essentially a large rectangle sewed together at the sides, gathered at the top and attached to a waistband. The stretchy knit fabric makes zippers and hems unnecessary. Hers was a much smaller rectangle, sewn halfway down the side (I chose to leave the bottom of the side seam open creating a slit that makes running, climbing and all sorts of toddler play more possible), and a rolled skirt top into a casing in which I threaded 1 inch elastic. We wore our matching outfits to church today. I'm glad she still thinks I'm cool enough to dress like!

 Getting her to stand still and look at the camera was a battle this morning...
 She's just too silly and energetic for Sunday morning portraits!
