My Creative Space - Skirts and Dresses


I have finally been able to turn my attention this week to the making of Christmas gifts. Last year I made the littlest and middle a Christmas skirt. I made a simple pattern which featured a top skirt of different panels and an solid underskirt with trim. Both girls really liked the style so since their Christmas skirts still fit I thought I would make them each another skirt in the same style but non Christmas this year. This is little's in  progress - cute strawberries with polka dots:


A friend recently got the ruffle attachment for her over locker and I found a great dress pattern for middle which is the perfect excuse to try it out:)  The plan is to make two dresses for middle and one for littlest in this pattern. This is one of middle's in progress.


So two skirts and three dresses, not a bad start. Wish the oldest (a boy) was so easy:)

Hope you have started on your Christmas making! For more lovely spaces you can visit here. Cyndy Pin It

You're right they're so much easier to sew for than boys... these are going to look great... I have a ruffler foot and it makes life much easier :)

I'm with you there - my 2 sons are so much trickier to make things for, while my daughter has so many handmade clothes. I love the fabric for the dress!

They will be gorgeous dresses. I so want a ruffle attachment for my overlocker, I need to chase that up, thanks for the reminder :)
