Skirts Galore

I spent my labor day weekend trying to avoid going into labor (not for 10 more days!) and was able to get some sewing in. I was on a skirt kick and created 3 sassy skirts for Scarlett this fall.

I'm loving simple mod black and white and used strips of white and black cotton fabric to create this skirt. I purposely made it shorter since I think it will look sassy with super opaque tights and/or knee-high boots. Total cost: $8

Tulle and flannel together make for one feminine fall skirt. Last fall, I made a smock (below) with this same fabric and so now baby girl #2 and Scarlett can coordinate. Total Cost: $6

This may be my favorite skirt.....

I instantly fell in love with this fabric at Joann's Fabrics and was thrilled when it was on sale for only $1.99 / yard! I added matching pom-pom trim. While I know this makes the skirt hard to launder, I could not resist.

Total Cost: $9


  1. These are gorgeous! I especially love the first one!

  2. They are so darn adorable! I love the black and white skirt...I'm a huge fan of Black House White Market, which makes everything in black and white, with one "pop" color each season. And how cute will matching outfits be! Oh you have to post pictures!

  3. Those are all so cute! I would LOVE a smock just like that for my baby girl. Would you be willing to do a tutorial? Or did you use one? Or a pattern? Thanks!!

  4. I love the flannel with tulle skirt -- which skirt pattern did you use? And I guess I should learn how to layer. I've mastered the simple Oliver & S lazy days skirt and am dying to move on to something more challenging.


Question or comment? I'd love to hear it!
