Red Pillowcase Skirt

Now that Two has switched
her favorite color
from yellow to RED,
(did you see Sunday's picture?)
some new clothes were in order.

After the success of the yellow
pillowcase skirt from last year,
I found a pair of red pillowcases
at my favorite store for $2.

Cut them the length I wanted
(including waist seam allowance):

(I did 16" total for a calf length skirt.)

I wanted it to twirl
so I cut in the ends at an angle:

(I did 2" in on both sides.)

Sewed everything together,
slid some elastic in the waist

$2 worth of fun!

PS. You know it's a hit when she wore it
for 4 days in a row!
And yes, I let her do it.
It's the simple things in life, you know?

PPS. When measuring your child's belly,
make sure she's not puffing her stomach out!
It might make your skirt
a bit too big!
But if it's in her favorite color,
I promise she won't care! :o)
