Meggie's Crazy Gypsy Skirt

I just finished the first project from my new favorite sewing book. (Actually, Meg finished it for me since she was anxious to get on with the wearing.)

We are truly in love with the finished product! It certainly took longer than most of the projects I take on. I can't even count the number of times I had to change thread colors! It wasn't difficult - just a lot of steps.

Yucky photo - sorry!
I'm also pleased that except for the rickrack and the heart ribbon, everything came from my stashes of supplies! I've got some knit that I'm thinking of using to make her a t-shirt to go with the skirt. Every time I look at the book I get so excited to start something new for my girlies!

  1. I just got my copy of the book. Natalie and Josie have drooled over it. Poor Josie will have to sew for sisters of up-size soemthings.

    Josie had seen it here and had no idea I had ordered it.

    We are still hoping to stop by for a visit at the end of December while we are at my dad's house
