Back to School

Yesterday was Bella's first day back at school after being out of preschool for the last two months. We were both very ready for summer break to end and she was super excited about starting her new Pre-K program.

I told her I wanted to make a special outfit for her using Jona's new skirt pattern. I thought Heather Bailey's new Pop Garden fabrics would be so fun and cheery...all Bella thought was that they weren't pink. After some arguing in the beginning (and fake crying from mommy), she ended up very happy with the result.























This is the most "twirly" skirt I've ever made and had no idea how happy it would make Bella. She was literally running around the house singing and twirling when I had her try it on. You can see I made a few adjustments to Jona's pattern...not so much adjustments as omissions. I'm really lazy when it comes to sewing clothing. Like Jona, I can see how important the little details are but unlike Jona, I'm just too cheap and lazy to do them. I didn't do the border and I also axed the bias hem. I really do think the bias hem "makes" this skirt but again, I was just trying to save time and move on to my next project. If I was a better mom, I would have gone all out like Marie did for her Isabella.























Hopefully, now that Bella's back in school and the whole family is on a schedule again, I'll get back to sewing more regularly. In the meantime, here's a special coupon for blog readers in honor of going Back to School...

I love it! That print is perfect for a skirt like that and it turned out so pretty! The whole outfit is just darn cute and tell Bella that she looks like a princess in it! Even after all your omissions, it still turned out great!
