Twirly Skirt

I found some super cute fabric on an outing with my friend Jaime and immediately had a vision. I wanted to make a fun skirt, have our other friend do an embroidered shirt, and make some sort of flower headband. I searched the internet and found the perfect skirt tutorial here. I knew it was the perfect skirt for my vision. Mine is much smaller then the one in the tutorial since I have a two year old. But I definitely know that this is a skirt pattern that I will be remaking several times as Miss Genevieve grows up. And I knew I needed to find the perfect flower to complete my vision and found that here. Instead of using a regular button, I wanted to incorporate my 2nd fabric and purchased a covered button kit- and hot glued it all to a round piece of felt & an alligator hair clip. And thanks to my friend Christie, who has an awesome embroidery machine, she helped my shirt vision become a reality.

I love the finished look of all three items together. Genevieve will be debuting the outfit for her 2nd Birthday pictures this weekend. Can't wait!
