Today we are over at Sewing in No Mans Land taking part in Kelly’s 12 Skirts of Christmas Series…
…where we are sharing a tutorial for some skirts that I made my girls to wear on Christmas Day.
I’m pretty excited about them…and weirdly enough I bought everything to put their entire outfits together at Wal-Mart. The shirts are Garanimals (I actually love Garanimals shirts for the girls…they wash and wear wonderfully) and each of them cost $4.88.
And then the fabric for the skirts is some crazy satin I bought a yard and a half of for $3.25 and the tulle, of which I bought 2 yards, cost only $3.00. So even after I add in the cost of the elastic for the waistbands it means that I ended up getting two Christmas outfits for less than $20!
Unfortunately the night that I bought these shirts and this fabric was also the night I was robbed in the parking lot of Wal-Mart…so in hind sight I should have bought more shirts, and fabric, and groceries…that way the crooks wouldn’t have gotten so much money and I’d have more fabric. Which, I suppose, makes the moral of the story out to be: Buy as much fabric whenever you can because you never know when your going to get robbed.
Hummmmm…not a bad moral.
I think it’s one I should live by.
Where was I?
Oh, that’s right.
Over in No Mans Land!
