Insa Skirt

When I pulled out these fabrics and the book "Sewing Clothes Kids Love", I asked my daughter if she wanted the Insa skirt or the Feliz party dress or the Manhattan Special Occasion Dress.  She replied that she wanted a skirt.  Of course, I was forgetting that all skirts end up as strapless dresses :).




I have also seen her wear a boob tube from her dress-ups as a skirt and a fairy skirt as a poncho.  I guess your wardrobe is more versatile when your chest, waist and hip measurements are all about the same.

  1. Very groovy. The colours and textures are fabulous. Let's face it, you can never have too much twirling!

  2. Soooo cute. I just purchased this pattern a couple of weeks ago, so I love seeing it made up. My girls are just getting big enough to fit the farbenmix sizes. New patterns to obsess over.

  5. Really cute! I purchased that book after reading about the pants you made awhile back. When my daughter gets a bit bigger I'll be putting it to good use.
