Flower Power!

My sizing for little girls clothes is slightly limited, seeing as how I currently have only two sizes. Of course, I have occasionally sewn for a couple of smaller friends, but generally, I'm stuck in a 4/5 or very slim, tall 7/8. In order to branch out my skills, I enlisted the help of my beautiful niece, L!

I made this for her from a Simplicity pattern (that the number is torn off of!). However, it is really only a two layered circle skirt that is gathered on one side. This was also the first time I "made" bias tape to trim the bottom, so that was something cool to learn!

If you need a great tutorial on how to make a circle skirt, check out Dana at Made. Very simple!

I made a huge fabric flower at the gather, and of course had to make a matching headband! To make the flower, I just rolled and glued. If I ever recreate it, I'll do a tutorial.

The fabric used was from Michael Miller Gypsy Bandana collection. I love the pinks and greens! I also love how her bag that she already had matched perfectly!

Thanks, L! I look forward to you helping me out again, soon!
