an abundance of cuteness

A couple of weeks ago I found this fabric on clearance for $1.74 per yard. I immediately thought about how cute it would be as a pair of lounge pants for Lucy. The little border would be great at the hem. And I couldn't beat the price. I whipped the pants up yesterday afternoon...
I immediately thought of how cute this side would be as a skirt for Lucy. So, I just cut the fabric down the middle and used half for the pants and half for this adorable skirt. Seriously, I can't get enough of the skirt. I so wish I had one!
This skirt if perfect twirling (isn't that the primary role of a skirt?). It is also perfect for going to market...
It is even perfect for sorting through the goodies that you pick up at the market....
Of course the frilly glass slippers are optional. I am so happy with both of these. I can hardly believe that for $1.74 I was able to make Lucy a pair of pants and a skirt. She loves both of them. The skirt was so easy to make. It only took about 30 minutes yesterday afternoon. I am now looking through my fabric stash to see how many more skirts I can make for her.

I love great fabric bargains. Now days it seems like fabric is so expensive it is hard justifying sewing versus buying at Target! But it is so satisfying to make something original AND save money.

Very cute pants and darling skirt. Makes one wish they were still that tiny. But then, we one could not sew such cuteness. ;)

I just love the pants and the skirt. You got a great deal. The model wearing the outfits made them even cuter. Love to all.

What a great find! I just bought some beautiful red fabric with a boarder,and I'm having a devil of a time finding a pattern for a skirt that doesn't mess up the boarder. Did you just do a simple casing on top of two panels?
Both the skirt and pants are too cute!!

LOVE it! The pants and the skirt! That fabric is great - and I recently came *this* close to buying a dress for my oldest that had adorable little houses across the bottom...

That is the cutest fabric I have ever seen. How I wish I could find super cute (and cheap) fabric like that down here in the Caribbean. You would think, huh?

Abby Jartos said...

As always, you amaze me! They are gorgeous. And under two bucks???!

Dandelion Quilts said...

WHAT a deal! And you couldn't beat it for the cuteness you ended up with. I agree, perfect for shopping and of course, twirling. I would have never thought of using that for lounge pants, never.

Adorable and clever. Bravo!!

Susan said...

That fabric is so cute! It looks like vintage fabric, I don't see too many cute patterns like that in new fabric. Do you know the maker or pattern name? Nice job on the pants & skirt, I would love a skirt like that too!
