TGIFF - Little Girl Skirts

I am hoping to be travelling next weekend to visit my nieces.  Fingers crossed that work cooperates and that we're not affected by hurricanes.

I made skirts during my last visit, and I promised I would make more.  Aliyah loved the skirt and wore it to bed, but Miah was not impressed.

The skirts are reversible.  This print is from the Woodland collection by Natalie Lymer of Cinderberry Stitches for Lecien.

I thought taking photos of quilts was difficult...skirts are even more difficult.

I didn't have enough of the turquoise fabric for the waistband for the second skirt.

I didn't sew the ends of the elastic together as I want to measure the girls to make sure I have the right size.

I also have the print in yellow and red.  I think I'm going to use the yellow print with a red solid to make another reversible skirt pattern where the waistband matches each side of the skirt.

  1. I hope it all works out and you get time with your nieces next weekend. I also hope they both like the skirts. :)

  2. Cute skirts and lucky nieces! Hoping the stars align for your trip.

  3. The skirt is cute! You are one special auntie!!!
    I like it where the waistband doesn't match the skirt ... but that's just my opinion! :-) You could do all sorts of things ... like have the yellow woodland be the red woodland's waistband and vs versa ... such fun!
    Hope your trip goes as planned!
    Happy skirt making! :-)

  4. Those skirts are adorable! Stay safe!

  5. Pretty skirts! The fabric is really cute.

  6. Super cute skirts! I really, really love that yellow and that red fabric. I really hope your plans work out. :-)

  7. The skirts are sweet! I hope you get to go for your visit this weekend :)

  8. the skirts are lovely. when I got my little granddaughter I had great plans to make her clothes, but of course I haven't! I hope you dont get the hurricane, that's all we need

  11. Just so very adorable! Such fun to see them in action on Instagram too! Glad you got to finally spend time with them even if you need a few days holiday to recuperate lol. Can't wait to see them in these skirts!
