Okay, I admit that I started off with a lot of excitement for Kid's Clothes Week, but after I finished the rainbow tunics I haven't touched the sewing machine until today. So this skirt is my only other finish. I do have a bunch of other patterns ready to be cut though!
This is the Ruffle Bustle Skirt by Lil Blue Boo.
It is a free pattern, and I have to admit that I have become completely enamored with Ashley's style. I want all of her patterns! Juliana seemed a little suspicious when I showed the skirt to her, but as soon as she tried it on she commented on how soft it was. I used some pink modal spandex and cut up an old pink stripe shirt of mine that got holes in it. My shirts always end up with holes in them in the same spot! I think I have discovered that it is when I am snipping threads while I am sewing! Dang.
A totally fun skirt for running...
and doing the chicken dance in?
Last Sunday I also whipped up this tank top for myself. I altered the Pieced Tunic pattern to draft the pattern for this tank top.
Then I used this tutorial from Tea Rose Home to embellish it. I didn't add as many ruffles however, since I didn't think it would look as flattering on my curves. ;0) This fabric is so soft and buttery. I just like to stroke it.
Linking up to Tea Rose Home!
