Dixie's New Skirt

So lately I've been on a sewing kick, which is odd because up until a few months ago I'd hardly sewed a thing in my life. But I'm really enjoying it, and I find that the more I sew, the more excited I get about sewing something else! Pretty soon I'll have closets full of homemade clothes... at least for the girls. I'm not sure why, but there seems to be a big difference between sewing little kids clothes and adult clothes. While the little kids ones will look cute, the adult ones just never seem to look like anything but "homemade". Not that there's anything wrong with being homemade. I guess. :) 
So anyway... here is my first adventure at a skirt. Honestly... about the easiest thing you could ever sew. I didn't even use a pattern. But I love it! And when Dixie saw it, she said, "Ooo... Peerwy" ('pretty'). I think that means it's a keeper. :)




I'm sure there are many more variations of this to come!
