2nd Entry

This is my 2nd entry in the Lil Blue Boo contest!
Take this cute pattern
and two old t-shirts


...and you can make this! I used the old t-shirts to make this skort. I loved how I didn't have to hem the under shorts - the pattern guides you to just use the existing hem - sweet!! I appliqued the skort and top (I bought the t-shirt below) with a rose motif from some cute brown and pink floral fabric I found at Joann's.


See the cute little undershorts? I know my sister will love that for my niece!

Ok dude, seriously? The skirt itself is cute but if i saw it i probably wouldn't totally fall in love with it but with the applique? Oh. My. Gosh. Sooo cute!! U sure do have an eye for things!

Thank you for your comment Natalie! This set is just plain gorgeous :)

To your question: Yes, I did make a knit skirt under all that chiffon (it took 1 yard of 2 1/2" wide strips of no fray chiffon to complete a size 3/4 toddler sized skirt). I think it would work over any material though. My grown up sister still wants me to make her one. I think I'm going to look for a premade white tennis type skirt, or A line, so that hers has more shape and less "poof" :)
