Ooh, La La!
Doesn't every little girl need a gray leopard coat? Well, Abby and I went out shopping a few days ago... like she needs clothes! Needless to say when she spotted this coat from across the shop it was truly love at first sight and it had to come home with us. But, then what does mommy come up with to wear with such a coat? After a bit of thought, it came to me and at 3 am in the morning I was in my studio stitching away. I designed this adorable little drop waist banded skirt with layers of flirty ruffles. Honestly, it was so much fun to make I have been making lots of them this week and having a blast. I went through Abby's closet looking for other things that I could pair up with these skirts and made a whole bunch of new outfits using tops and sweaters from last year that still fit her. Abby said "Mom . . . this just has to be one of the cutest things you have made! You should make it into a pattern!" and so I am. This one is named Claudia.
Oh, and speaking of patterns just wait till you see. I have a bunch of new ones that are just days away from being ready. That's why I was so quiet this past week I have been working like crazy. So, hang tight just a little longer they are coming.
