skirts, skirts, skirts.

I've been making lots of skirts, I think they are one of my favorite things to make and wear.

I made this one for me out of Amy Butler's Love using this tutorial with a few modifications. I've already worn it twice, I love it.



This skirt I made this morning before I had to pick Sage up from school. It is for Christmas. Yes I am thinking about Christmas. I have decided that the couple hours I have while Sage is at Kindergarten in the morning will now be dedicated to Christmas crafting.


I love this little mushroom skirt! The whole thing was inspired by the red and white scalloped trim on the bottom that I purchased from Stephanie of Stephmodo.

She sells her beautiful finds (usually from France) in her etsy shop.

By the way if you haven't followed their restoration of a beautiful french cottage La Maisonnette, you should go check it out, it is amazing. I want to stay there at least once in my life.

This skirt looked absolutely darling on you the other night. I would love to make a skirt like this--any suggestions? I like how it doesn't have the bottom layer like the tutorial, I am too short for something that long.

I am excited to see your show and tell at Spark. It was nice to meet you!!

I love them! I also like the 2 layer look of the Amy Butler skirt. Maybe that's what I need to make with my AB Belle and Lotus stash.....

I'll go with you to France to stay at La Maisonette!

Amy, I love what you did with the trim! I was impatiently waiting to see what fun thing/s you would do with the vintage French trim. I'm excited to see what else is up your sleeve. This toadstool skirt is fabulous! But then again, you know I love toadstools :)
