New Skirt For The Munchkin

 McKinley has needed new clothes for church for a long time but I haven't ever gotten around to it until now.  I made this cute skirt using this tutorial from Sewing In No Man's Land and then I also made a headband to match.
 I must say I love it!  Sorry, there will be no cute posed pictures.  I had to give Kin bribes just to get her to hold still for half a second and I certainly wasn't going to go outside in this freezing weather, so just imagine you see a beautiful field behind her or something. :0)
 The bribes only kind of worked!  Do you see her cheeks are full of goldfish crackers in each picture!
I don't know how people get in focus pictures of toddlers.  This girl is wild.  This is as still as I could get her and it's only because she would drop a cracker and pause to look for it.

The skirt has a high waist, although it doesn't look like it in my pictures because the waist was folded over.  Kelly also gives the pattern for an adult size and I'm tempted to make one for myself.  Go check it out!  I'll be linking to some of these places.

I was wondering if you could do a quick tutorial on how you made that head band! I love it!!

Kelli said...

Thank you Brooke! Those headbands are actually one of two things I don't share how to make because I actually sell them. I'm sorry, I feel bad. I'll have to do a giveaway or something soon to make it up to you. I'm sure you would have great chances since I'm not a "big blog". :0) I'm so glad you like it though.

What an adorable skirt! I love the "grown-up" fabric for a little girl - very fancy. I can't get very good pics of my 14 month old. When she sees the camera, she wants to come to me. Bribes definitely help!!! hehehe

Love the print on that skirt, it turned out so cute!

Kelli said...

Thanks everybody and Mallory, I think the fabric came from Hobby Lobby but I don't really remember for sure.
