Yellow Skirt & Tie

Standard

A friend of mine has twins, adorable twins.  They are 3 years old and one is a boy and one is a girl.  Once she learned that I was selling things I make, she asked me to make a matching skirt and tie for her twins.  She searched through my stash of fabric and picked out what she wanted and I got right to making them.

This yellow fabric that she picked is kind of thin and I wanted the skirt to not be see through in any way, so I did a double layer.  Which meant that I didn’t need to do a bottom hem and that it’s reversible.  I measured her kids and did a simple gathered skirt.  The tie was a basic tie with a neck strap with velcro.  Change the knot and the length of the back tail of the tie and it grows with her boy.

I think there turned out really well and love that she has matching for her twins.  I even got to see them wear it to church and it looked so good on them.

I would love to list clothing in my shop, but I don’t know what size people will want.  Too many variables for clothes.  Oh, well, just make it and do it.  If it doesn’t sell, use it for my own kids I guess.  If you have a custom request let me know and I’ll whip it up for you.
