Then, I made a skirt for Eva!

I used every possible square inch of blue fabric for my skirt, but had plenty of the black and white polka dot fabric leftover, so I made a quick skirt for my girly girl!  No pattern here, I just cut a 10″ wide strip of fabric about time and a half what I’d need to wrap around her body, and a narrower strap almost twice as long as the first.  hemmed and gathered the long strip, sewed it to the shorter one to create that flouncy look at the bottom.  Stitched up the back seam.  Folded over the top to create a casing for some elastic (which I then added, and stitched the hole closed).  Voila!

I let her try on the skirt and – the girl is well trained! – when I grabbed the camera she rushed over to the curtain we always use for a back drop.  Then, she struck so many cute poses I couldn’t pick one.  Here – enjoy a multitude of pics!
