A panel skirt for my sweetie!

OK, so I decided to re-sew the panel skirt for my little girl who is now 18 months old.  I just couldn't resist myself, really.  I just think the fabrics are SOOO adorable, and since I sewed it once, I knew I would do better the second time.

In case you didn't read my last post, I made this skirt, but it wouldn't go over my daughter's thighs in order for her to wear it:

So, I put this version aside, and created this version with a much longer (and better fitting) waistband:

Today was a grouchy day for picture-taking, by the way.  You really do have to be creative when it comes to getting my little one to smile for the camera!  Usually her daddy has a special way to get her to smile and pose, but she was not having it this morning!  I decided that I would jump in the picture with her to get her going...

It didn't work as well as I hoped, though.  

Why can't they just leave me alone?

Maybe the next photos will be better!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving day!  Ours was nice and relaxing, and the food was delicious.  Kyle asked if I would be participating in the PJ sew-along this weekend, and I have decided not to.  I will be sewing PJs from my new Ottobre magazine for my son, but I don't have everything I need for the project and I didn't want to rush to get everything done.  If you are participating in this sew-along, have fun!  I'm sure the results will be great!

Stay sew-filled!


  1. Awwww. She is just too cute! I can't wait til my little girl is that age. Love the skirt, way to give it another go!!

  2. That skirt looks great, and you whipped it up pretty fast! I love the black and white.

  3. The skirt is very cool and fun, and I like the Mary Jane shoes.
    I bet your pjs will be fun too!

  4. I'm glad you made this again. It really is adorable on your little sweetie. Oh to have a girl to sew for...Maybe I will have granddaughters some day! and I won't pass up the opportunity to sew for girls when I get the chance :)

  5. Oh, I really like the mix of prints. Even though she isn't smiling, it's a cute picture of the two of you. :)


Let me know what you think!
