Skirting Through The Week- Day 4

I know honey, I want this week to be over too!  Not cause I am tired of skirts, but..HELLO!  Weekend please come!

Emmalee's modeling has hit an all time low.  With all the twirl skirts I think she has just twirled herself into exhaustion.  

As for Mom, on the other hand, I still can't get enough.  I will let you in on a little secret.  I made all of these skirts...and some others, over the course of about 2.5 days between errands, children, and filling orders.  That is just how easy they are when you have the right equipment...a ruffler foot, rotary cutter and self healing mat, a good book on tape, and an endless supply of Minnesota snow.  Secret number two, I made these in 2.5 days back in January and am just now getting around to posting them, HENCE, the long sleeved shirts and leggings.  Yep, Emmers has been getting daily use out of these skirts.  I totally love it.  I have a pretty strong aversion to girls wearing the average length t-shirt and leggings.  Actually, I hate it.  Now, all over the place grown women are running around in shirts that come to their waist and leggings.  I don't like it.  
Blah.  Won't get into that whole mess, but I can tell you my girls don't wear plain least not skin tight without a skirt or nice, long shirt.  Yep.  Old fashioned and boring.  Well, not boring exactly.  Check out the print on that skirt!  I love it.  NOt boring.

Emmalee likes it too.  I don't really understand the thought process I went through last summer when buying this fabric for pants...other than sometimes crazy pants can be fun.  If crazy pants can be fun, then check out this outfit.  I know it was a bit much as far as stripes go, but don't judge me.  I promise it all looks super cute in person.  This outfit actually ended up one of my favorites from the whole sewing spree.

Again, full twirl here, equally tall three tiers.  

Back to the striped shirt, it really isn't my fault.  I went to Target to grab one of their $5 t-shirts in a lime or yellow to go with the skirt, but all they had was neon yellow!  What a disgrace.  I wish one of these stores around here would just have a huge, rainbow-ish wall {like they do with jeans} but of  t-shirts in any color regardless of season.  I know it isn't going to happen, but I would really enjoy it.  I can see myself going just to look at the beauty of it.  YOu can see it, can't you.  A whole wall of cubbies containing different shades of each color in t-shirts for kids.  I would go and stare and run my fingers along the seams, then leave feeling complete, happier, rainbows and unicorns brighter, and a few dollars poorer.  Who wouldn't love that!
I need to go to bed.  Have a great Thursday.  Have an even better Thursday and go sew a skirt.
