Well now. This whole puppy thing sure is keeping me on my toes.

I had the girls keep an eye on her for twenty minute increments as I sewed up this skirt yesterday and today. She's good, really. But very much a puppy. Which is similar to a toddler…. but with fur and four legs…..

My first project for kcwc is this lovely twirly skirt. The pattern is by Sew Liberated. (You can grab the pattern for yourself at a whopping 65% off right here in Meg's shop.) The pattern seems true to size, easy to understand, quick to sew, and it fits beautifully. Definitely a win! The faux double layer adds really nice weight and twirl to the skirt. Both my girl & I are quite smitten with the results. 

The fabrics are both ones that have been sitting in my stash forever, just waiting for the right project to come along. The corduroy is Robert Kaufman and the floral is Caroline Gavin's Wild Thyme. I adore this corduroy print. I can't remember ever sewing with corduroy before, but I will again. I love the way it drapes as a skirt. So very pretty….

I'm sure if you didn't have a new puppy, it would come together in a quick afternoon sewing session. I think it took me about two-ish hours total to sew this one up. That time accounts for sewing the wrong & right side together once while talking to one of the kids and then seam ripping it back out. Oops~

I'll see you tomorrow afternoon for another kid clothing post. But before I go, the little guy would like you all to see his awesome new haircut. (courtesy of mama & the clippers, which sounds kind of like an 80's punk band) I guess he was inspired by Joe's recent buzz and wanted to match. He's been sporting spiked hair all day and throwing me thumbs up and peace signs. Totally hilarious.
