Project: Twirl Skirts...Check!

Several months ago, I was convinced by my friend, Char, to make some twirl skirts for my girls. For those of you who know Char, you know how incredibly talented she is. If you don't know her, just check out her blog and you will soon be impressed! I am nowhere near the seamstress that she is, but she promised she would help me out. So I went to the fabric store and the fabric has sat in my laundry room for the past 4 months. Finally, last week I went over to Char's house and we completed these: Aren't they cute? We made one for both my girls and they love them! It was a little like painting by numbers, but sewing. Char would tell me "cut these fabrics into 4" strips", then "sew these together with a 1/2" seam", and so forth. It was fun and I really appreciate all of her help (which was a lot)! Thanks Char! Stay tuned for wrap-around dresses, which is another project Char assured me I could do and I will need her assistance on. (Again, purchased the fabric 4 months ago and it is sitting in my laundry room, ha!)

  5. Way to whip out some Martha Stewart skills girl. Way cute!!! Char makes me sick. I can only say that because I love her so, but truly afyer I go to her house and see her homemade dinner roating in the oven and her children dressed in their hand sewn clothes while scrubbing their walls with homemade organic dtergent, it's enought o make me want to hang myself by my store bought bra strap. She and you are amazing and very talented and I think the best of you both. Do those skirts come in big girl sizes?

  6. Those are cute, Tam. I think we ought to get off this 'Char' bandwagon though. We are going to give her a big head. I want to start spreading the rumor that her children are severely neglected....it would work if they weren't always dressed so cute, hair combed, and well read!

  7. Well, I saw them, and I think they turned out beautifully. You need to give yourself more credit, Tam. It's in your blood to be able to sew--you did nice, even lines, which not everyone can do, and they looked very professional! You can always tell by looking at the inside of someone's sewing project how maticulous they are, and you did a perfect job! I loved them, and I love that your girls love them, too. Taylor looked so cute on her birthday in her special skirt!
