Sew Pretty for Little Girls Blog Hop & Giveaway




****This giveaway is now over****

********************************************


I'm so excited to be here today as part of the Little Lady Liberty Blog Hop to celebrate the release of Alice Caroline's book Sew Pretty for Little Girls (ebook version) (called Little Lady Liberty for UK peeps).  When Alice asked if I wanted to take part, yes couldn't come out of my mouth fast enough.  Aside from the book being chocked full of 20 beautiful projects for little girls, its dripping in Liberty fabric eye candy!

The book is divided into three sections, Blissfull Bedrooms, Twirly Girly Garments and Pretty Little Things.  It was almost impossible to pick just one project to make but ultimately I decided on the Fleur Embellished Party Skirt, because Nora definitely cannot have too many skirts in her closet.

I chose a Cotton + Steel lawn print to get a similar drape and hand as the Liberty fabrics shown in Alice's book, and I cannot be happier with how it turned out.  I altered the length of the skirt slightly as the book shows cutting measurements for average size for a 6-7 year old girl, but the size customization tips in the pattern worked like a charm.  Nora gives her seal of approval too!

I have fabric purchased to make the Libby Ra-Ra skirt next, now just to find a few minutes to put it together!

  15. I'm excited about the skirt. While I won't be making a skirt for my son, that is the only type of waistband that works for him. I'd love to apply the technique to some pj pants for him. My daughter, however, would love a skirt, especially if it contains an abundance of tulle.
