Here's A Blast From The Past!




Remember Prairie Skirts? I loved mine! Well, I've decided to revive them and bring them back. Ralph Lauren made these a staple item in every women/girls closet years ago. These skirts were all the rage along with pretty and feminine frilly blouses, chunky belts and boots. I always loved that look and thought it would be fun to bring it back to life. This style meets so many criteria of what is important to those of us who are wanting our girls to dress like girls and still be modest. This pattern will becoming available soon as well and is called "Jessica". 

I have to say Abby and I had so much fun taking these pictures. Normally, she is very silly and giggly during our photo shoots however, as you can see, she was very serious during these photos and according to Abby "This skirt made her feel more grown up and she wanted to look like a model in the magazines!" Where she came up with that. . . I will never know because we don't have any fashion magazines. But this last picture cracked me up because it really does look a bit like a "real fashion photo" How we pulled that one off I will never know. To be honest I am a complete amateur with my camera and when I get pictures like this one it's pure luck.
