Very excited to share some of  the fantastic pix from the Odelia skirt photo shoot…now I REALLY can’t wait to go live with this one! Big, BIG thanks to my amazing photographer, Hannah Huff, of Hannah Huff Photography and to my beautiful model, the founder of a non-profit very dear to my heart, Sole Hope. I am very blessed to have both of these awesome chicas in my life.

 

 

 

Just a few more tweaks to the tutorial and it will be ready to go…yay!

 

Ever since the Rings of Ruffles skirt was released I have had the question asked over and over…”Do you make them for grown ups?” and over and over I have answered that with a decisive “no”. My biggest reason, other than I am just more into making children’s clothing at the moment, was that as the skirt got bigger it would get too heavy with all those ruffles and would be difficult to wear. As the inquiries grew and grew, though, I began to wonder if I was missing something. I just couldn’t see it as a woman’s skirt. I was afraid that the bulk would just not be flattering on a curvy body and that it was just too…well…childish. You may find it interesting with all the ruffle goodness of LilyGiggle that I, myself, am not a big “ruffle person” in my own wardrobe and so it was difficult for me to visualize such a thing. Today, it hit me, though. I began to see a way to make a ruffle skirt with some design changes and a touch of sophistication that would be something, even I, Mrs. Clean Lines, might wear out on the town. I also figured out a way to take away the weight and when it all came together in my noggin and I had my “Eureka!” moment I could not WAIT to get behind my sewing machine and knock it out! SuperDaddy took the littles to the Y for open swim and I had a few hours alone to make it happen…yesssss!Please excuse my wrinkly top. I was super eager to get some shots. Anyway…so what do you think??? I LOVE it! It is not heavy at all and is so stinkin’ comfy that I now know why my Loolie likes to wear hers so much. Should I make a tutorial and grade the pattern? I’m thinking XS to XL which would make it fit girls size 12-16 with a minor length adjustment and fit women sizes 0-18.
