Every Girly Needs a Twirly

Twirly enabled skirts are the whole reason for wearing a dress…at least it is for a five year old! I made this for my precious ChicaBean to wear on her first day back to school.



I used Amy Butler Soul Blossoms fabric… “Buttercups” in Honeydew for the bodice and parts of the sash and “Disco Flower” in Tangerine for the skirt. The remainder of the stash is made from my …uh…stash. Ha! I crack me up.

I slightly modified a pattern from the book Girls World.

I love sewing books with patterns…much cheaper than purchasing patterns from the BIG THREE. I highly recommend the book by Jennifer Paganelli of Sis Boom.

All the Way From Oz

The “Holda Buttload O’ Books” bookbag made it to my G O R G E O U S baby girl who is in Australia attending school. She sent me her modeling portfolio…heh.




Oh and that beautiful hard-to-describe gingery-coppery hair color is all hers. Never been touched by any color or chemicals.
Then of course she had to give me THE FACE… don’t know where she gets her snark from . . .

Then she blew me kisses. Sniff. I miss you Baby Girl . . .



Really R E A L L Y miss you bigtime.
