Hi/Low Skirt!  Grandma Made It!

My daughter is usually the one sending me pics of garments to make for her, but this time it was her oldest who sent me a photo and said, "Grandma, can you make this for me, please"!


How could I resist!  So many of us Grandparents don't get to see our older Grandchildren as often as we'd like - because their busy lives get in the way!

But I am blessed to have Grandchildren who call me often and invite me to various events! I also feel blessed that they actually want to wear something that I've made!

These pics were taken at her recent senior photo shoot!
Yes, she's a budding model!  


I made her hi-low skirt using an Ankara Kente print that I purchased from LLD720 African Fabrics
It is a self drafted skirt - using half circles as my template.  I added an invisible zipper in the back and in-seam side pockets.  
Pockets!  We all need pockets! 

I just completed a bonus pocket class for those who have purchased the 6 month membership program for my online classes.  
Memberships and stand-alone courses are still available!  
The 3rd class will be posted in January!


She and I mulled over adding horsehair braid to the hem, but in the end we decided against it.  The hem is a narrow hem...oh the circle hemming!  LOL!
Once I saw these photos, I knew we'd made the right decision!

The top is a RTW.





















 This was her Instagram post after she received the skirt!
 Gotta love the expressions of thanks...especially when it's posted for all to see! 💗

            I'm quite pleased with how this turned out!  We did measurements only...no fittings!
                 I finished it and shipped it to her!  She called and said it was a perfect fit!



 You might remember this 2 piece dress I made for her prom!  Yep!  Another Ankara print!  
And yes!  It has pockets, too!



I'm happy with the skirt, but more importantly, I'm very proud of this young lady! 💓


Happy Endless Sewing!
