Matching Skirts

I have done a little bit of sewing these past couple weeks.  One pair of capri pants for Tiana are a little big so I will wait to show those until next summer.  I have had this knit for a couple years just waiting to become a skirt for me.  I just don't sew much for myself and am a little bit intimidated by it.  However, I love how this turned out and it was fast and easy.  I have some extra wide elastic that I used for the waist band which made it really easy and comfortable. I used a knit skirt that I really like as a pattern for this one.

 This is a shirt that I did at the beginning of the summer but I keep forgetting to get photos of it when I wear it!  I had an old white shirt that I just hand sewed some antique doilies on.  I love how simple it is but also how it dresses up an otherwise boring shirt!

I wrapped it around the back a little bit too.
 AND for Tiana's skirt... see this is why I usually just sew for her... she looks adorable in EVERYTHING!  I used this tutorial (which happened to be the perfect measurements).  Her and I match but not the same style.  She loves it of course... anything ruffled and comfy is a hit!

 I will never tire of seeing these on my patio!  Tiana is our little artist, she loves drawing people and flowers!  Everyday more little details are added.

Love it!!!!

I LOVE Tiana's skirt!! I'm going to have to bookmark that one for future use! I haven't turned on my sewing machine in months....
