6 Little Twirly Skirts

I made six of these little cuties for Christmas. The skirt was super simple with a quilted band in the front.

When I first saw this cute fabric I knew I needed to make this skirt.  Here it is--just in time for another granddaughter's birthday!

The fabric is from the Modern love collection by Lizzie B Cre8ive .

Here's the birthday girl trying on her new skirt.  Looks like she saved a little birthday cake for later!

Something For Me!

On a recent trip to New York I made a quick (because I had husband and son along) visit to Mood Fabrics.   I found this beautiful silk and finally got a cute simple top put together.  It's perfect!  Just what I wanted!

Time For a Change

I realized I've been sewing with a lot woven fabrics lately and thought it was time for a change.  Here's a cute little knit dress that I fell in love with.  It was made from Simplicity pattern #8147.


My Cute granddaughter requested a dress with pockets and sleeves just below her elbow.  This dress was perfect.  The only change I made was to lengthen the sleeves just a bit.   If you have some experience with knits, this is a pretty simple dress.

Eyelet Love

I found this beautiful blue eyelet and knew I had to make something for a granddaughter.

Pretty cute!

I used Simplicity Pattern #1433.  The dress was pretty straightforward with a couple of exceptions.  First of all watch the seam allowances!  Some of them are only 3/8".  Secondly, I found the armholes to be super large for the size so I had to make adjustments.  Other than that, I think it's really a great little dress.

New Sewing Machine

I got a new sewing machine!  I love it!  I am a true blue Bernina girl so I finally decided on a special edition 530.  I wanted to experiment with my new toy so I took a little break from work sewing and made these cute pillowcases for the grandkids.  I think they made a cute Valentine's Day Gift!

 I just loved this cute little pattern Butterick pattern #6239 .  I followed the pattern exactly and think it looks great!

Guess I've got a thing for corduroy jumpers!  Here's my latest.










I used McCall pattern # 6983 and didn't change a thing.
