Bird Skirt Done Three Ways

Leslie and I bought a bunch of this bird fabric at JoAnn's during the winter. It was a great find since we used our 50% off coupon. I think I ended up with 2.5 yards. In the begining I had a dress in mind for the 7 year old and a skirt in mind for me. The dress never happened. Instead I opted to do skirts for all of us.

For Me

Leslie's Summer Staple skirt ~ I just cut it shorter and added a border

I'm on the prowl for something green to wear with my skirt {shoes or a sweater} but I'd even settle for a green bag! How cute would that be?!

  2. Love yours with that black border!

  3. these look really great. i love the fabric. i never seem to find such great finds at joanne's.

  4. K looks like she is really into her posing. :)

  5. What a fun medley. Really cute. I think I like yours best :)

  6. Really good job. Not too matchy-matchy but united. Isn't that our goal?

  7. love the adult skirt and that material! so cute

  8. salt water shoes would look adorable with those skirts, but the only green is lime. my canary yellow one's sure would look good... (maybe a trip to joann's is in order)
