happy st. patrick's day!
nothing like sitting down to work on a sewing project at 9pm the night before it's supposed to be worn. heh. of course, it's something for the bean to wear to school for st. patrick's day. i mean, did you expect anything else?
luckily, i work best under pressure. and i didn't even drop a single curse word! probably because what i was working on was pretty easy to do.
i started with a simple $6 tee from target:
plus some fun fabric the teen and i found at joann's for half off.
using the dress the bean had just taken off to put her pajamas on, i measured out the fabric and sewed it into a long tube. i folded the bottom up twice, ironed it flat, and stitched the hem into place. then i gathered the top of the skirt, pinned it to the bottom of the t-shirt, did a quick topstitch, and voila:
and, bonus - i had more than enough leftover fabric to cut another strip and twist it into a flower that i glued onto a hairclip covered in a little green felt. even better? i was done with all of it in less than an hour.
i can't wait to get her dressed for the day. she's gonna love it.
