Now for my Spring project! I decided to sew this month. I was excited to sew when I saw Samantha's new fabric collection Serenata from Riley Blake Designs. My daughter has been asking for a gray skirt and Samantha had some perfect fabric with gray and a off white pattern in it.

Spring Skirt!





I found a simple tutorial on line. You can find it HERE!  Now, I am no seamstress, so I think just about anyone can do this...if I can:)  I also made my own sash to tie on the dress.  I am so excited at how it turned out and best of all...my daughter loves it...SCORE!  Isn't she gorgeous...I think so:)

Thanks for stopping by my blog.  Make sure you visit every blog on the hop.  Your next stop is Linda Kaiser's Blog!  Click on the icon below to move on!
