So I've been following Amy at Raising Arrows and Caroline at The Modest Mom in their series called She Wears Skirts.
And this week they have a link up of skirts in pictures! And I want to thank my 6 year-old, Derek, for taking the pictures...hehehe ;) So here goes...
These are some of my very first skirts I actually have sewn myself!!! I used the Homestead Blessings Sewing DVD's as a guide for meausrements and my dear friend Melisa came over and gave me lessons on how to use the sewing machine and cut and so on......Needless to say, I'm very proud of these, because I'm what you would call a sewing dummy!!! ;) Lindsay has been wearing skirts and dresses alot longer than me. She loves to be in a dress and almost never wears pants or shorts anymore. It's extremely difficult to find skirts that are decent enough for little girls anymore, so I thought, hey! why not just start sewing them for her! And she absolutely loves them!!! I've sewn 2 now and have more to go! She especially enjoys matching mama.
This is one of my favorite outfits!!! I bought two denim skrits at a yard sale the other day, this being one of them. They came from Catos and I found out afterwards, that Catos is about the only place left that sales denim skirts all the time. Anyway, I love just wearing this outfit out grocery shopping or Friday nights when we all go out as a family. You can always dress down or dress up a denim skirt.
And this is one of my favorite Sunday skirts!!! I wear this year round. I have a black turtle neck that I put with it in the winter. I found it at a thrift store here in town for about $6!!!! It's 97% cotton and 3% spandex so it's very stretchy!!! I love this skirt!! I wish I could find more just like it or at least material like it so I could sew my own.
So, I hope you've enjoyed, and I hope you also link up!!!!
