I needed a skirt for my dd stat so I opened a pillow case lengthwise and attached the bottom half of a white tee shirt (4T). A little elastic, some lace a shiny buttons and there it was!




It actually took a while because I hand sewed it all. If I had had the machine running it would have been much quicker and I probably would have hemmed it, too! I have a matching shirt but I'll have to catch it after laundry day and edit it in.
What do you think?

It is better to have crafted and failed then never to have crafted at all.
Yes, I am stalking the Toys and Playthings board. Thanks for noticing!
I'm cheating on Craftster with Pinterest. It's ok though. There's overlap.

Thanks! I had given up on getting any comments. The hand sewing wasn't so bad, rather soothing. I did it while reading online, or playing videos for the kids.
