Four years ago I discovered craft blogs while searching for wraparound skirt patterns. I think I found Cece of All Dolled Up, who sadly no longer has a blog but will always be among my favorite blogs ever. I remember going to bed with my thoughts swirling. It has changed my life in so many ways. All for the better.
Anyhow it’s today, four years later that I finally got around to deciding on a wraparound skirt.
This one I altered for Molly and her teeny tiny waist, which at the moment is the opposite of my own waist.
My oldest is heading back to school tomorrow, after a nice long stay at home. I’m trying to act like her going to school faraway is okay. Yup. Just fine. Though I have a house full of other kids to care for and enough stuff to stay busy with I just want that kid here too. She is super funny, and she likes crafts. That’s good-people qualities, you know?
Though it seems like I am just rambling on and on, I’m not really. It’s all relative. The wraparound skirt was research of sorts to look through lots of old patterns and fabrics and make a gigantic mess…which in reality was therapy of sorts to keep my head happy busy.
I’m trying not to make it homely as the pattern, but there is really only so much you can do to make a wraparound skirt not come off as homely. Regardless, I love the simplicity of a wraparound and if ever someday when my baby is toddling around and my waist doesn’t look like I have a front butt* I would like to wear one, too.
* I made this phrase up, it’s pretty clever, eh?
