A redo

Since I haven't been keeping up to date, it must be noted that Caroline will wear pants and shorts now, but more on that later.  She will still sport a skirt, especially when it is warmish outside.  I was looking throw Garnet Hill's kids clothing and saw a skirt that was $45 on sale.  ON SALE!  And I thought, as I do often, I could make that.  (for some reason I can't upload a pic of it, so click on the above link)

But this time I actually tried.  I went to the local thrift store and bought a few XL women's button down shirts.  I cut them off just below the arms, put in an elastic, made pockets out of the sleeves and cuffs.  This is what I came up with.  For less than $5.  And Caroline loves it.  She is sporting her swimming suit (or as she referred to it today, her zucchini) because we are off to swimming.  I have a few more tweaks but am happy with the finished product.

Hello...I didn't know you were back on the blogging front. I love the skirt. You and lInds amaze me. I can't do clothes. Crafts only. I've missed you around here.
