Milly's latest twirly skirt

Finished this skirt for little Milly Moo a few days ago. I had the bits cut out ages ago but lacked the oomph to sew them together (blame it on the log cabins!) Thats one thing I love about sewing clothes for the girls, can finish a project in a day as opposed to quilts taking weeks. I thought I'd be a bit different and sew the second tier with the overlocked edges on the outside as I have seen a few kids skirts in the shops done this winter. So I did that and it just looked horrible, very tacky! So I unpicked it all and sewed it overlocked edges in and it looked better.

As usual though I battled to get a picture of her standing still wearing it, here she is climbing over the edge of Grace's bed trying to get away from me and the camera!

Glad to see I'm not the only one who has trouble getting photos of the boys (I usually have to take 20+ lol). The skirt looks adorable, I love the nice bright colours, perfect for these dull wintery days!

What a darling skirt -- and I have to agree, making clothes GENERALLY is a great "in between" project with quick results. That is, unless you agree to make a quilted piece of clothing -- in which case, the weeks thing may be the reality.
