I have new favourite birthday skirts! They are still simple and have taken less than an hour each! I totes love them! The dollies! The ric rac! The reversibility (we all know little ladies like to change their minds)!
The pattern is from 1, 2, 3 Sew and the author has a lovely blog called The Long Thread which I totally think you should go and visit since she is ever so generous and shares lots of crafty links and tutes and whatnot!
You can see Ellen's change your mind skirt from the book right here. She has used beautiful Liberty fabric which my budget can't quite reach yet. The fabric below was purchased from Spotlight yesterday (except for the black babushka dollies which was gifted to me). The red and blue is from their Lisette range and the vintage dressing up ladies was just a lucky find in their quilting cottons. Cute yes?!
These two are heading to Hobart to my lovely neices who have birthdays days apart from each other. I am going to team them with a couple of plain tops each from Target and maybe some nice tights - outfit complete! Present complete!
