Kids Clothes Week – Barely Finished!

Let’s be honest, I’m not known for my sewing skills, I’m known for my quilts and my cute kiddo (at least that’s what I think of her), but one of my goals this year was to work more on my actual sewing skills. I have been taking a class over at Craftsy to learn how to use the serger my mom gifted me 2 summers ago. It has been sitting relatively untouched until this class and I am proud it say that I used it yesterday on my first ever serged project!

Last week Anne and I went to JoAnns and she found a fabric that she wouldn’t let me leave the store without, Robot Twill! Now I had no idea what to do with twill or even how much to buy, thankfully Debbe from Pieces to Love is my go to sewing guru and she texted me how much fabric I should buy for a simple skirt (did I mention our daughters are roughly the same size?).  I spent Sunday afternoon doing lesson 3 of my Beginning Serger class (which I LOVE) and Sunday night selecting a tutorial. I finally settled on the “Simple Skirt” Tutorial from MADE.

I have to say when Anne saw it after her nap she squealed, grabbed it and immediately ran to put it with her other skirts (she has quite the collection my little girly girl). I had to bribe her with candy to get her to let me take her picture, but you will see from the cuteness, that the candy bribe was totally worth it!

I would say she loves it! And because I just love her little curled under toes, one more pic to make you smile!

I am posting this a day after the official challenge has ended but I swear I made this on the 29th of April!

Don’t forget that today is the last day to link up for April’s A Lovely Year of Finishes! I picked out my project for next month and I’m really excited to get to work on it!
