Old Navy + IKEA = Cool

Okay so I got the ol' Singer Ingenuity out today and tried something I have been wanting to for a while. I buy long jean skirts for Hannah from Old Navy, they're great but where the split is in the back they seem to wear out really fast. They pull when she runs (she doesn't know she's not suppose to run in those skirts) and the back wears out way faster then the rest of the skirt.

Anyhow, I had one of those such skirts and

this really cute birdy fabric from IKEA and a little initutive today so I jumped in. I bought a meter of fabric and used almost all of it with the belt too.
So here it is, oh yea and the model too. :0) I made the skirt two tiers and I like the fullness. The one problem I found was stitching the seam up or down on the inside. I couldn't stitch it to the jean because then you would be able to see the stitches on the jean and I could figure out how to stitch it to the skirt piece either. Oh well, it still turned out great.

Oh yea if you upsize this photo of Hannah you'll see she just lost a tooth. She goes tomorrow to the orthodontist and will soon be sporting shiny, new braces. She has really strait teeth but she is missing a tooth. It never formed and will never come in. She's missing the one to the right of her two big front teeth, no I don't know the name of that tooth, I'm a mom not a dentist! :0)


I included this one just because I like it. Hannah's always goofing off, I love that she's always smiling.

Look around, maybe that skirt you were planning on throwing out can be repurposed, ya never know.
