Easter Dishtowel Skirt


Today I got up and was ready to sew. I have been itching to try to make the dishtowel skirt from Lil Blue Boo. Virginia and I made a trip out to Target this week and picked up the exact two easter dish towels for the skirt. This tutorial was simple and quick. I believe I had the skirt cut and sewed under an hour. With a 3 year old and a puppy running around the house short and sweet is good. 

Virginia was thrilled with her easter skirt and already put it on and ran outside to blow bubbles and play with her side walk chalk. I believe she is enjoying all the skirts I have been making her. I am loving them as well. I am finally feeling comfortable sewing skirts. And with our spring weather we have they are the perfect clothes for Virginia to play in. 



This whole week has actually been beautiful. The weather has stayed in the low 80's with a little breeze. We took advantage of the beautiful day yesterday and Virginia, Cookie, and I took a walk up to the neighborhood play ground. This is one of the many reasons why I love our neighborhood. You can't beat a playground within walking distance from your house. Virginia loved sliding down the slide. They have swings just her height. Cookie took cover under the playground equipment and got some shade. 

All in all this week has been great. I am hoping soon to break out of the skirt sewing and try my hands on a shirt or dress for Virginia.
