Paint Chip Skirt

My little niece, Jane, just turned two, so, as usual, I whipped up a little gift and sent it late. I'm afraid I'll never get a birthday gift to those kids on time.

I had this skirt in my project list for a couple of years now and finally had a chance to sew it up.

I just love the simple style and color palette - totally up my alley. I used the simple skirt pattern from MADE and changed the measurements a bit to fit a 2T.

Originally it was only the three pink colors, but as I was putting it together it started looking REALLY short and knew my brother (Jane's dad) wouldn't let her wear it. Apparently he's fairly opinionated that her skirts must touch her knees. (I guess I can see where he's coming from.) So, for him I added the white to the top and like how it turned out.

By the way, did you notice my labels? I just printed my little logo onto printable fabric and cut it up into tags. They probably won't last through many washes, but it's a cheap thrill.

I hope you had a fabulous birthday, Jane! We love you very much, little one!


  1. It came out so cute!! I think the white added to the look. I am the first of my family and friends to have a baby. I'm hoping someone has a little girl soon, little skirts are just so precious!

  2. Very cute! Love your labels! Good idea!
