belly has been quickly speeding through her clothing. shirt sleeves are too short. pants are becoming high-waters. evidence that height is eagerly passed down through my husband's family.
nonetheless ... belly has inherited those blessed height genes.
in addition, she also is a princess of the most highest regard. and princesses don't wear pants. they wear dresses. and at the very least ... a skirt. with tights. not pants underneath.
this has resulted in numerous stressful mornings in which the "princess" is demanding dresses and skirts.
so, in order to ease some of the morning rituals and reduce the cost of buying all new stuff ... mommy decided to pull out her creativity hat and use up some extra material and ribbon laying around. she found an online tutorial. but quite honestly, she doesn't follow directions well.
this is the result.
i'm pretty pleased with it! especially considering it was a twenty minute project made from material and ribbon scraps. (aka free)
confession ... it was a 30 minute project. i lined up the ribbon funny, which resulted in 2 lines closer to the middle than was desired. to remediate ... i added another more decorative zig-zag in the middle of to make it look like i meant to do that. (which seemed easier than digging through my craft stuff to find my seam ripper.)
it's the perfect skirt for acting rather crazy in ... while mom is attempting to take a picture for the blog.
(ignore the naked bebe in the background. apparently i need to start making her some clothing as well.)
