I can (barely) sew!

I decided that I needed to sew a princess skirt for Mack to wear at my niece’s Princess + Pirate Birthday party. I don’t know why I felt such a strong desire to do this… I can’t sew. I don’t have a sewing machine – and if I did, I wouldn’t even know how to use it. For some reason, those obstacles didn’t stop me! (obviously, I’m nuts)

I bought some green tulle, some aqua netting, and some silver embellished ribbon… I measured the girl (sort of) and made this poufy-wrap-skirt thing that my little princess loved! I paired it with a tye-dyed tank that we’ve had for a while – it had the crowne on it & then tied a huge bow around the bun of her hair. Voila! A princess!

I hand-sewed the entire thing while watching Project Runway. (there are even pleats in it!)

Imagine what I could accomplish if I actually knew what I was doing?!

(you have no idea how many times I say that each and every day)
