Urban Summer Skirt

I purchased these fabrics to make a bag for myself {which I created the design for & is in progress right now}, but when darling daughter saw the fabric being cut asked, "SOOOOOO, what is THAT fabric for?" She then informed me that she *loves* polka-dots and really would love a skirt for the next morning {today's} playdate. {Now isn't that a woman thing? NEEDING a new outfit for an upcoming event.} So, I proceeded to whip up this tiered skirt based on the tutorial at Kuky Ideas. It was sew simple, that I want to make a couple more, especially since it uses only fabric strips and a bit of elastic. I plan to make one for my niece for her birthday along with a matching appliqued shirt. I wanted the floral to be in the middle, but since I was using scraps there wasn't quite enough. But if she is happy with it & then so am I!

Okay, I think it is adorable, you failed to mention on Thursday that you made it THAT morning. It is awesome.

Very Cute and Very trendy! Your dd has great taste! I have often read that some of the fabrics that a few of my WAHM friends are using to make something for me need to "become" something for their children as well when they see it being used. I think it is pretty common!

That is an extremely cute skirt. I would love to sew for a little girl again! Maybe some day! Thanks for your sweet comments on my blog. I didn't make the bouncer cover but I bet it would be easy to copy your current cover. I did make the other cradle stuff. :o) Debbie J.
