I managed to make a 2nd item for Kids Clothes Week! This was just a quick rectangle skirt made from 1/2 yard of fabric with a gathered waist and a deep hem, but it was the perfect spirit item to wear to my husband’s picnic for his department at NC State.
This fabric was printed ridiculously off grain, so I cut based on the print rather than the grain, and then ironed it into submission.
It was a little long – like Little House on the Prairie long, so I hemmed it up 3 inches, and it’s still slightly long.
It was a quick and easy skirt – or would have been if I didn’t have the owner of said skirt on my lap “helping” unthread the serger and sewing machine. She loved the attention she got wearing the skirt, and many of the students loved her support of their school. Plus, it’s long enough that it will still fit if my husband goes back to NC State to get his PhD someday 😉

Goodness! She has a new wardrobe – a dress, a top and now a skirt! Saying that, the print on this makes it a ‘special occasion’ piece, right?
