Hi dear Readers!!
I was so exited about my little girl going to Grade 1, so I decided to sew a new skirt for her. I thought it would be a perfect surprise for Picture Day. She would look neat and formal like a 1st Grade student should. So I made one just before the end of the summer break. I thought it came out quite nice, however, it wasn’t her favorite. So, I decided to make another one with a bit different colors, pattern and shape.
I found very nice piece in fabric store and matching jersey material to make top out of.
I cut it a bit longer so she can wear it next year as well. The design itself is quite common which I thought is good, so she will not feel “standing out”.
Then I said… how about the lining! There has to be lining! And I used this pretty pink which I had left from some previous project.
I put it all together thinking that I should have one of those too so I can wear it for office meetings, hehehe
The next piece to do was the top. Again I was trying to keep in my mind what my daughter’s taste in fashion is and I kept it simple, easy to put on and take off with stretch around the neck and wrists, and with just a little bit of fancy decoration with silver ribbons to bring some more light into the whole composition.
What else? hymmmmm …. how about a nice white head band? White will be perfect! It will be a stark contrast in my daughter’s dark hair.
The whole imaginary picture was coming to life! She will look so beautiful, and she will have a super Picture Day at school!
Well she could have (in my opinion) obviously if she would only wear those clothes which I have made for her….
Yes, you may believe me or not, but this little Pixie didn’t put it on in the morning. I went out to work early and she got ready for school with her daddy, and she has made her own choice of clothes. Even the head band got rejected 🙁 Yeap!
We still have a chance to get the picture retaken in a couple of weeks, so lets see if these lovely clothes will get a 2nd chance 🙂
Thanks for reading and I whish all of us another happy and creative weekend!Skirt for School Picture Day,
