Trying To Find

Time is in short supply.  I have three little girls.  That makes the main hobby in this house being mommy.  (and my blog).  Beyond that, I just don’t have time for too much.  My hubby is good to send me out running.  Really good, but even that only happens sometimes.  I am actually looking for another race to make sure I keep that a priority.

But lately, I have been thinking about other projects I want to do.  One of the main things I miss is sewing.  I want to make skirts for my girls.  Pretty basic skirts.  Caitlyn has one she just loves.  I had ones like it growing up that I loved. I totally get it.  But hers is worn and has started to tear, so I really want to make her another one.  It is a very flowy skirt, full and long.  Like a broom style, but not scrunched up.  It reminds me of a peasant or a gypsy. 

I have been searching and searching on-line, but just can’t find what I am looking for.  I have some skirt patterns and have measured her waist, but I can’t decide how much I should double it for the fullness I want.  3 times, 4 times. 

My plea for opinions went out on twitter and facebook.  One friend sent me a “pinned” project from pinterest.  I looked and it was so close.  So I dove in, I asked for an invite to this group.  A twitter friend sent one my way.  So I searched.  And came up with nothing.  I am so confused, I have no idea what I am doing.  I’m tempted to keep trying, but at the same time, I know I am very tired, I’ve been awake since 3 am and it is now 8 pm; I am going to put it aside for today and keep looking tomorrow.

But trust me, if you are on pinterest or just have a great pattern, I will take all suggestions.  I would love to make this skirt this weekend…
