Brithday Party Michelle

Added Jan 30, 2008

I made this skirt to wear on Christmas day but it was too cold so the first time I wore it was for my baby girl’s first birthday party. I used silver ric rac for the bands around the hips and I was going to use some silver fabric I bought for the band at the bottom but I sewed it on back to front and then could not salvage it. So I found a silver ribbon in my ribbon box and sewed that on, much easier.

Material Notes

Pink striped shirting fabric, cotton/poly blend. Silver ric rac. Silver ribbon. Pink zip.

    It’s beautiful! I’m a big fan of that fabric. It’s really lovely. (And isn’t a pretty ribbon the perfect quick hem fix?!) Bravo!

    I love the skirt as well. :) Your little baby is so sweet, sitting in that popular Peg Perego Rocker chair. :)
