Last year I made a ruffled skirt and top for Kayla using the same fabric. The goal was to send the ballet slippers to her along with the outfit but I put the slippers on the back burner. Crossing that project off my list was a goal for this year. The pattern is from My Favorite Things. I used leather for the sole instead of fabric and batting.
I'm a working mom who has a few too many hobbies. I've been sewing since 4th grade, making some pretty rough looking Barbie clothes by hand. I think I moved to the sewing machine around 7th or 8th grade. I've taken very few sewing classes. Because I spent a lot of years in Catholic school, I only had about 3 months of sewing in Home Ec. Most of what I've learned has come from the library, the internet and my friends.
