Say whaaaat? It's true, I made some girl clothes a few weeks ago.
Finn's friend had a birthday and I took it as an opportunity to make girl clothes Here is how the conversation went in my head. "Oh your daughter wants a certain toy and will be bored if she has to open clothes? Welp, I have two boys and would like to make a skirt." I think it's the perfect situation- I get my two funny, rowdy, crazy boys and I will make all of our girl friends dresses so I won't have to miss out on that. One thing I will gladly miss out on… the drama-filled, moody, teenage girl years.
I used Dana's Simple Skirt Pattern for the skirt. Her pattern is for 3-4T so I just subtracted 2 inches or so for a 2T. It was really easy and quick.
For the top, I started with a plain off white t-shirt. Ironed fusible web to a scrap piece of the skirt. Cut out the letter "K" and ironed it in place. Then I hand embroidered around the edge of the letter. Lastly, I added a little heart just to girl it up even more.
I added a taylormade tag.
And wrapped it up.
