This Skirt Will Fit Her Next Year, Too.

Measure twice, cut once.  I swear I adhered to that motto this time but the skirt is, once again, too long for my child!  This same phenomenon occured with the St. Patrick's Day skirt I made back in March.  Looking at the bright side, though, it's still cute and she can wear it for a loooong time before she outgrows it.  Maybe "third time's a charm" will be the motto that holds true in my case.  At any rate, here's the skirt:




I followed this excellent Split Twirl Skirt tutorial that I found at Crap I've Made.  If you're not familiar with this blog already, check it out now while you're thinking about it...it's a gem dahling.

  18. What an adorable skirt! And a cute kid, too! :) I don't think it's too long. It's a great length since it gives her room to grow.

  19. This is so cute. You did an excellent job. I think it's just the right lenght too with room to grow. I made Hannah a pillow case dress last week, it to is just a wee bit (well really a big bit) big but she loves it so that's all that matters.
    Thank you for sharing. I'm off to check out the tute and the other website you suggested.
    Take care and God Bless.
    Oh by the way, I'm your newest follower at the moment. I'm not positive where I found you though, I've been blog hopping off and on all day and I did start out at Welcome Wednesday and then went from there.
