Cute skirt, right?

I made it.

Pretend you have never had a washing machine. You wash your clothes by hand. And you wash a lot of clothes. And then one day you get a washing machine, and you feel like singing.

That is how I felt when I used my new Singer Profinish Serger machine for the first time this week. I wanted to jump up and sing. This skirt was conceived, worked on, and born all in one single nap time. I heard Drew waking up upstairs just as I finished the last stitches. I had never dreamed such a project could be done in that amount of time.

And just wait till you see Drew in it. I am obsessed with her and ruffles. And for once I don't care if you look closely at my work, inside and out. Every stitch looks professional with my new machine.

Are adults wearing ruffles these days?


  1. Very cute!! And with little black leggngs underneath...:) It's fun to dress up the girls in things I could never pull off!! Or, would probably look silly trying to pull off!

  2. your getting to be a real pro with the ruffles!!! Way cute I can't wait to see miss drew in it!

  3. I'm totally impressed. Have you downloaded your project Runway application yet? hehe... they should have a a PR for kids clothing design!!

  4. What can I say except you are amazing. Will we be seeing these on Bitsy Bear in the near future?

  5. I didn't realize you were such a hard-core sewer! I wish I was!!

  6. So cute!!! Drew looks adorable in it in that Christmas picture.
