Back in September- right about when I had my miraculous self discovery that went a little something like this, I had read a blog entry by one of my favorites, Soule Mama. It featured a photo of many many many perfect wee skirts for her little wee daughter. I thought, "oh hey- I have one of those! (little wee daughters, not skirts)
and then I thought, "oh hey- I've never sewn a stitch in my life! (with the exception of a cute little Waldorf star fairy when I was pregnant with Iris)
and then I thought, "oh hey- maybe someday, along my journey I will learn to sew... like, with a MACHINE (oooo.... aaaaaa.... scaaaaaaaary....)
And just like that, I got a brand spankin' new sewing machine, followed the link from Soule Mama's blog to the free pattern and... may I present to you... Iris's first "Mama Made It" skirt:
I can't say it was easy, it took me about an hour... but I can say that something completely clicked and I believe that I have found a new love.
