I asked Addy to name this skirt and she named it Bob. I think we need to work on her name choices. I veto'd and now presenting the Princess Charming Skirt....
It got it's name from the charm pack - a group of 5" x 5" squares of fabrics in a variety of coordinating prints. I absolutely LOVE working with charm packs becuase what better way is there to get a feel for different fabric prints and styles than working with a dozen or more different varieties in a single project? Also? I love that I don't have to cut. And I don't have to coordinate fabrics myself.
So the Princess Charming skirt it is!!!
These skirts are different from a lot of my stuff because they are not sized to fit other than the waistband. They are sized to grow with your child over a few years. As you can see, this dress on Addy is pretty long. She should get another 1-2 years out of it, for sure.
Here are just a few of the fabric groupings that I would love to see made into this skirt:
And my absolute favorite not-yet-available but coming-soon group:
These skirts are now available for custom order in the shop.
