"I don't want to drive up to the pearly gates in a shiny sports car, wearing beautifully, tailored clothes, my hair expertly coiffed, and with long, perfectly manicured fingernails. I want to drive up in a station wagon that has mud on the wheels from taking kids to scout camp. I want to be there with a smudge of peanut butter on my shirt from making sandwiches for a sick neighbors children. I want to be there with a little dirt under my fingernails from helping to weed someone's garden. I want to be there with children's sticky kisses on my cheeks and the tears of a friend on my shoulder. I want the Lord to know I was really here and that I really lived." — Marjorie Pay Hinckley
As many of you know I am not much of a seamstress. And when the lack of talent isn't present, I strive even harder to conquer the task! Therefore, I couldn't just make 1 twirly skirt, I had to make 9 (Just to make sure I have it down!). (Actually they were Christmas presents for the cousins on the Briggs side.)
House On Road Hill has a fabulous tutorial on how to make them. No pattern required! If I can make them, so can you!
A close up of the girls skirts & shirts I made!
That's A LOT of sewing! (Not to mention 1 skirt and 3 shirts are missing from the picture!)
I made another skirt and shirt for Addi (They have become so addicting, that I just may end up making her one for every season)
