I’ve only been working on this twirl skirt for Em for
about a year.Every time I started working on it, I would get overwhelmed and just put it to the side. I think God knew I didn’t have the patience to sew for more than one girl and that’s why He made the other 3 boys. Emily and I collaborated to pick out the fabrics and we both agreed on Tina Givens… my baby girl has GOOD taste! :)
She wanted to make sure it had purple and blue, her two favorite hues. I obliged.
After the skirt was finally finished (and by some miracle still actually fit), the shirt posed another challenge. The fabrics of the skirt are so bold and colorful that I didn’t want the shirt to distract from the outfit. Em and I looked at embroidery designs for HOURS to no avail.
You know that state where you aren’t exactly awake but you aren’t quite asleep yet either?This time is when the best (and weirdest) ideas pop into my head. I even keep a notebook beside my bed to write down the good stuff. Seriously, if I don’t write it down, it’s g-o-n-e by the next morning! I know, I know, I’m crazy. I blame it on all the kids. :)
Back to the idea…
I started digging around the next morning and found everything I wanted…. silk, mini pom pom fringe, lace, tulle, and a scribbled rose embroidery design. Put them all together and
Multi-textured designs just make me happy. When everything comes together like it’s meant to be, my heart gets all warm and fuzzy. I’m just saying…
Linking up with these parties this week. Check some of them out for some fabulous ideas. :)
