New Duds...

Last week I found instructions for a simple peasant skirt online. Since all 4 girls needed new fall outfits, I thought I'd give them a try. Here's the results:



I'm quite happy with how they turned out, and the girls couldn't wait to wear them today! Deanna picked out the fabrics for hers and Natalie's skirts. I was a little worried about that pink (it's really bright!) but the purple tones it down nicely!
I really like the black and white for the twins. And I can still make Deanna a matching purse....

You should, Suzanne! They were fun to make. The instructions were on that link you sent me for the hobo bag (jcaroline creative? something like that...)

Those are some pleasant skirts, Lisa!

I can't believe that John didn't think of that one first!

Looking forward to a whole weekend of Harsevoort humour at Thanksgiving!

John can't seem to get past picking on Art....
