Lady in Red

I think these simple twirl skirts are becoming a fast favorite of mine. It was red day at preschool and she had nothing to wear...shocking because RED is my FAVORITE color!

At 8:00 the night before, I realized this little fact and remembered seeing some "Minnie Mouse" fabric at Hancock several weeks earlier. I ran to the store and grabbed it. At 40% off it was a steal! It was even better with my 20% off coupon! Then on the way home I ran into Wal-Mart to grab a white t-shirt. I had the ribbon at home already. 45 minutes later, we had a red outfit for under $5.00.

Simple Twirl Dress

I saw an outfit like this in a posh little girl's clothing store and the price tag on the skirt was outrageous at almost $40. So I took a yard of fabric, sewed four straight lines and threaded some elastic through. The only difference that I can see is that the polka dots on the other skirt were bigger. fabric cost me $2. I had the elastic already, but if I had bought that, it would have been maybe $1.
