This skirt. Oh how I loooove it!!! The pattern is Sandi Henderson's Analise pattern. Patterns scare me. I will admit it. But this one was not hard, and had easy step by step instructions. I am clearly a bad instruction follower, though. I did manage to mess it up. The skirt is supposed to be much fuller. But, I still adore this skirt, and so does Angelina. That's all that matters. :) When I make it again, I will remember what I did wrong, and not make the mistake again. ha ha. It turned out fantastic, and how scrumptious is this Paula Prass Summer Soiree fabric? I LOVE IT! I am thinking about making a quilt with it.

I'm excited I finished this skirt for today's special day! Angelina is now in SECOND GRADE! School started today, and she could not be more thrilled!

I had a photo shoot with Angelina's teacher's son yesterday, and told her about the skirt. She freaked out when she saw it. :) Angelina has the same teacher this year that she had last year. Which is exciting for all of us. We really like her. She and I have actually become friends.

This now 2nd grader read TWENTY THREE books this summer!!! How proud is her book worm mama? More than I can say. This little girl is just amazing. She is smart as a whip, and full of compassion for others. I love her so very very much!
