Last week I thrifted another great bag fabric. The thrift store near me puts cuts of fabric in small bags, so you never quite know what you're getting. If I can see at least two great pieces of fabric in a bag then I buy it. There were a whole bunch of really great fabrics. I was SO giddy over about half of the fabrics. One of the best was this gorgeous butterfly cotton woven print. It was a really small cut so I was perfect for a little girls gathered skirt.
The cut of fabric was tall, so I cut it into three and sewed them together. It was simple and quick and just so cute. It's an elastic waistband with buttonholes and a ribbon tied in a bow. It's a little big for Claire at this point, but she can grow into it. I made the hat for Henry, and now it almost fits Claire. It was a cold day, so she needed some warmth without hiding the skirt.
The fabric has the prettiest colors, I just love it. It's so girly, and Claire seemed really happy to wear. She kept lifting it up and playing with it. She loves pretty flowers and cats, but she also love sticks and chasing big brother all around outdoors.
