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!

    Love the way you took up the Scottish theme! And don’t worry if Parya doesn’t want to wear your designs some mornings, it’s maybe connected to the dreams the milky way (see your story) gave her? 🙂
