Adventures in Skirt Making

My girl has a theory on what defines a princess--a skirt! If she has on a skirt she is a "princess" and if she does not have on a skirt she is "Lily." When we ask her if she is a princess she always checks to see what she is wearing before she answers. She takes this stuff seriously!

I found a great tutorial on how to make this Market Skirt here. This is the first time that I have attempted to sew any kind of clothes and I am really happy with it. Here are a few things that I learned:

#1. Read the entire tutorial before jumping in.
#2. Your sewing machine manual is a great resource and should be read. (I've had mine for over 10 years and just began using it last night.)
#3. I NEED a serger! I'm actually in a negotiation with a lady on Craig's List as we speak.

Here's my little "princess" showing off her new skirt.

And because everything looks better in Instagram Pictures:
