Who knew?

Who would have guessed being cooped up in a hotel would inspire me to sew. Well it's true I sewed up the cutest Halloween skirt for Brooke. The picture is not the best but I am hoping the details show. There are 3 ruffled layers. The 3 layers makes the skirt a little heavy. I am really glad I made the elastic a little tighter.

Brooke absolutely loves the skirt and still wants to wear it. I keep telling her Halloween is over but being the diva she is, she doesn't care. She wore this outfit to school the Friday before Halloween. The orange and black striped tights added cute flair. We topped off the outfit with custom made candy corn hair bows from April. She was a doll and made these up for Brooke.

So all in all I think the skirt was a success. I hope to get the sewing room unpacked. Maybe once I see it all set up I will get bit by the sewing bug once again.
