Adele seems to be the easiest to keep happy in fabric stores these days. While not completely happy to be there, she does enjoy looking at pretty ‘frabrics’ so I can make her new clothes.
This was her latest find from The Remnant Warehouse. I had to convince her that this one was better than some of those gold embellished Japanese quilting cotton fabrics and all the other brown ones she was picking because they looked like chocolate!
She picked the pink trim herself. So I didn’t loose any of the fabric design, I used bias binding to attach the trim and hem the skirt. I also added a waistband so I didn’t lose the design along the top.
Clearly she’s quite pleased with her new cupcake skirt and for the extra cost (about $5) and 30 mins work, it brought so much more peace to the shopping trip and it was much, much easier than calling out to the boys every 2 mins and asking them to stop running around/hiding/play fighting/etc.
