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…Survive til you Thrive!
