No one who has had a seven year old daughter will be surprised to hear that our Lulah is the family fashionista. It goes something like this:
“Momma! WHY won’t you wear a skirt?!”
“Ummmmmm. I don’t want to get my nice skirts dirty. I can’t move around so well. I feel silly wearing a skirt when I’m working. How about that?”
So, this rainy weekend, I finally found a skirt I can wear. Even better, I made it.
The idea came from the super cute magazine Mary Jane’s Farm (the August – September 2011 issue).
It’s two old red XL t-shirts I got at a yard sale. The entire skirt, figuring in elastic, cost less than $1. It took less than an hour to make (I was not exacting in my cuts and stitches AT ALL). It’s stretchy, it’s red. It’s pretty cute and I don’t mind getting it dirty. It came out a little shorter than I’d thought, but as Lulah was happy to point out, it won’t get so wet and muddy that way.
Good things can happen on rainy days!
