I love the simplicity of this skirt! So feminine and the colors are simple but bold. If I saw this skirt at Gap or Old Navy I'd buy it in a heartbeat.


In fact I have a birthday party to go to this afternoon and I'm wishing it were mine. I've been thinking about what I'm going to wear all morning and I've yet to decide.


I don't want to get too fancy because it's a child's birthday party but I like to dress up a little whenever I go to an event with other adults. This simple skirt would be just right.


I'd be lying if part of me isn't thinking of ways to quickly sew it before the party.


Brian would kill me. There's just no time. I still have to buy the present which I'll probably do on the way over.



I'm so terrible at buying presents ahead of time. However, this father's day I bought a great present a few weeks ago. The only drawback has been repressing my excitement for over a month. I'm just not cut out for being prepared.


I also loved this little ruffled neck top. The pattern is subdued enough so that the look is delicate and charming. Of course, the sweet little girl and braids don't hurt:)

I love the yellow skirt. I'd love to know what pattern (if any) she used as I have to have one of these :) Thanks to you for sharing and congrats to Macy on making such a lovely skirt.

I agree with you. That is such a lovely skirt. And wouldn't be too hard to make one yourself.

Here is an idea for being prepared for gifts without having to rush out at the last minute. I keep a gift drawer. (Or actually drawers. I use a whole dresser. A box would work as well.) When I see things throughout the year that I think would make a nice gift for someone, especially if it's on sale, I get it and put in the gift drawer. Then when a birthday or gift-giving occasion rolls around, I shop in my gift drawer. It saves me time and money.

My 8 year old daughter and I are having a giveaway drawing if anyone would like to stop by.

oh, and i totally relate with the present thing...i usually end up ruining the surprise & giving it to them early! i just can't help it!

I completely agree with the present thing as well, I use the drawers under my bed. It also comes in really handy for little unexpected gifts for my friends when they're down in the dumps.

Thanks for all the comments on my skirt! I used Simplicity's NewLook pattern #6872. Its a simple pattern and I made some slight alterations to make the yellow band at the hem. Its such a great summer skirt!
