Hula Hoop-ing

Wednesday, November 7, 2012

This very cute Oliver + S Hula Hoop skirt was made during my weekend of bliss.  I didn't think Paige would go for it, she's really not that fussed about me making things for her, so I was pretty happy when she said she wanted one.  What's a weekend of bliss?  Well for me it was my husband and three kids going away camping for two nights leaving me home alone for the first time in my life!  I had some quality time with my sewing machine and have a few finished items to show you.



I made a size 8 using two coordinating fabrics from the Sarah Jane Out to Sea collection (chosen by Paige).  This was so easy to make and I love how neat and clean the reversible finish is.  



The skirt is not as short as it looks, Paige has hiked the waistband up because she likes short skirts, I didn't think that was supposed to start until she was a teenager!  I highly recommend this skirt - it would make a great gift too.
