Lazy Days and Twirly Whirly Skirts

Any day spent sewing, is a good day. ~Author Unknown

Just before we left for our holidays I saw Mel's plans to make a twirly skirt for her daughter and the whole time we were away I spent dreaming of the beautiful fabrics I would find for a twirly skirt for my dear Ess.

Little Eee's Appley Lazy Days Skirt

I returned home to find that Mel has been holding a sew-along this week with Lazy Days Skirts. I just couldn't help myself, my creative fingers were itching to make something pretty for my little girls.

Fortunately my stash had something pretty in it which was enough to make a small lazy days skirt for my dear 2 year old Eee. Fortunately my stash also held a matching red satin ribbon which made a beautiful trim, as well as ribbons to tie her cute piggy tails.

Can you tell it is hard not to move when wearing a pretty skirt? Or should that be 'when one is only two years old?'

I joined the sew-along and now some lovely fabrics from Quilt Fabric Delights seen here and here are hanging on my clothesline, hoping for some sunshine to dry them so I can begin to make more lazy days and twirly skirts for my girls. What a delight to receive my package only the day after I ordered the fabric. If you get your order in today, Sarah has a special offer for so go here to take a peak at that before you order.

Happy Sewing!

P.S. Let me encourage you, the Lazy Days Skirt pattern is super super easy!! Give it a try!

What a cute skirt for a little girl. Wish they had something for older ladies that was cute and figure-flattering, too!

Oh I know what you mean! Sometimes I dress my girls so prettyily and am very happy I do have girls to dress, then I look at myself in the mirror. Never mind, I do have lots of pretty skirts myself! ;)


Dear Cee, oh yes, I made one for my tall girl this summer, too and they are great (quick and easy and so very sweet to look at!).

Marvellous photos you have shown again...

Kind regards to you and the spring,

Lovely Nina, I will have to go reading through your archives to find your tall girl's skirt. I'd love to see it.

Thankyou so much for your kind words about my pics, these ones were taken with such haste and I'm afraid the place is quite messy with all of Eee's busyness!
