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.

Awesome mommy!
Do you have a pattern for the skirt or a tutorial?
Also... how did you put the ribbon on the shirt? Just sew it on the edges? It is just from side to side? Seems like it couldn't go all the way around or the shirt would stretch any more!

I love it!!
