Rachel Sews A Skirt

Today, when I got ready to make Rachel a skirt, she asked if she could do some of the sewing.  I knew she was ready for the basics, and this is a basic skirt!

Here Rachel is sewing the side seams.

Here she is feeding the elastic through the waist casing.

Up close of those sweet hands at work...

Here she shows off the finished project.

The fabric is so pretty - I like that she can wear it with a blouse for church or a t-shirt for everyday.

She really did most of the sewing, including the zig-zagging of the seams to finish them off....I only did the hem and the casing.  I am a proud Momma!


  1. She did a great job! It's really cute!

  2. Woo-hooo love this skirt!

    That color is fab.

    See you tomorrow!

  3. Woohoo, she did great! And she looks so pretty in it too!

  4. Bless her! It looks beautiful!

  5. Tell her I think she did a wonderful job.

  6. She did a beautiful job on that skirt!


  7. I'm so impressed! Good job, Rachel!

  8. You did a great job on the skirt sweet girl. It is beautiful. I am so proud of you.

    Love, Grandma

  9. Good job, Rachel! Pretty skirt on a pretty girl :-)
