This twirly skorts I made by frankensteining a pants pattern I had.  I took the pattern off at the length I wanted. It didn't take too long to make the pattern and the skorts went together in less than an hour.  Easy!

The shirts I got printed at spreadshirt.com.  I drew the artwork and manipulated them in photoshop to match the fabric that I already had.  They were pretty reasonable, too, which is...odd.  I got some shirts printed for my son, too, so I have to make some matching shorts for him.  Since it snowed this weekend, I have plenty of time.  Wink







Thanks for looking and any comments!  Grin

So so perfect for an active girly girl! I love how twirly the skirt turned out. Skorts usually end up with a preppy look that is very boxy.

Terrific idea!  I may have to give that a try, much easier (and cuter) than the old skirt and biker shorts routine.

So cute!  Great idea having the shirts printed... why didn't I think of that?  cafepress.com is another great place to have shirts printed.  Great job on the outfits, your daughter is adorable!

Thanks so much for the nice comments! Smiley

Oh, thanks...I haven't cut it at all yet and she's going to be 4 in a few months.  I'm thinking I should at least give her a trim soon. Wink

I haven't tried cafepress.com.  I'll have to check out their prices.  I did look at zazzle and they were more expensive.

The skorts are such a good idea. When I was little, I went to a private school where we couldn't wear pants, so we always wore cotton bike shorts under our dresses and skirts. But it's nice to have it all in one piece. And I really like the drop waist that you did. I think it looks so much more grown-up, for some reason.

I especially love the first oine and how your design matched perfectly!  What a great idea, unfortunately I'm not artsy enough to pull that off!  Is it expensive to get shirts printed that way? 

I think your daughter looks a like a pretty little fairy with that beautiful blond hair!

Actually it isn't very expensive.  The shirts were around $12 (plus shipping of course) and I ordered a bunch at one time so the shipping wasn't quite so bad for just one shirt.  It was a little time consuming trying to figure out what designs would print on which shirts, but I think I understand their printing for the most part now.  The more you print on the shirt, the more it costs, though.  For instance I have one for my son that has a small one on the front where a pocket would be and then the big design on the back.  That made it $4 more per shirt.
