|The needle is sharp|
Wasn't that a great question? We estimated and then counted how many stitches it would take before we needed to answer that question. Even J climbed into my lap and watched the process up close and personal!
Then, K saw that we take three tiny stitches on top of each other and then hide the thread to make a knot. She was surprised at how sharp the needle was. Yes, she stuck herself so she needed a bandaid!
The big tahdah moment was putting on the skirt for the first time. Yes! It fits! Yes! It swirls! Ahhhh. . .now, may she wear it often and love it!
Her mama texted me the evening she took her skirt home. Mama said K was so excited to share the skirt with her daddy. She planned to wear it to her "school" the following day!
Miss J's skirt fabric is ready for me to cut out the pattern. I may get to that over the weekend. Because the two girls are about the same size around; I wanted to see how this skirt fit Miss J. I'll be need to make a smaller size as we needed to take up the waist a bit.
