New Skirts and Future Plans

Several weeks ago, I received friendly critiques on my skirts. My lovely friends said that maybe the "one-size-fits-all" skirts do not actually fit every size.
So, I decided to call those "one-size-fits-most" and add 2 more panels (which is 5-6 inches) to create real "one-size-fits-all" skirts (but, please, if that does not fit someone, please let me know!). Now these skirts fit up to 56" hip (might even fit slightly larger). How exciting!

After running out of muslin for the reversible skirts--and wading through many other sewing and home improvement projects--two of these new skirts are finished!

Dark Blue Lighthouses (click here)
 The Dark Blue Lighthouses skirt has dark blue solid, blue & white gingham check, and tan/blue lighthouse/nautical panels.

Teal Lighthouses & Brown (click here)
The Teal/Brown Lighthouses skirt has ivory solid, brown & white gingham check, and teal boat/lighthouse panels.

Like my other skirts, these are reversible, with simple unbleached muslin on the other side.

Beautiful white crocheted lace is attached to the muslin side, but visible on both sides.

How about a GIVEAWAY and more frequent blog posts?

That's right, a giveaway. I've been thinking about it for a while, and I really want to go for it!
Pretty sure it will be an apron. Here are my options right now: (if you have opinions, please tell me!)
1) your choice of apron (winner chooses their favorite)
Apron shop section: http://www.etsy.com/shop/StitchPrincess?section_id=6658441

2) I pick an apron to give away (maybe autumn leaves or gingerbread)

3) adult & child apron combo
I'm still finishing the child-size aprons (actually, I still have more adult aprons to churn out, too!), but most of them match the adult aprons and are adorable!

I'm working on finding a heavily-followed blog to host this giveaway, and it will probably be next week :D Be on the lookout!!!

**Last thing: I plan to start blogging more often. Maybe 3-4 times a week, instead of 1-2. I'll do more posts about the processes of my work, reviews of other shops/blogs, new ideas and inspirations.

Any ideas, comments, reactions, recommendations? I love feedback!!!


  1. Now you get cooking (pun intended)....Great Idea...♥

  2. I think I would give one or the other (child size or adult) if it was me. Maybe the winners choice - because not everyone has use of child size. If you offer the choice you can show both in the blog post. Maybe the winner will be moved to buy the matching apron.

  3. I love your skirts! I can't wear skirts anymore but I would have loved to wear yours back in the day.

    I also love giveaways!


  4. yay! I'm glad you are gonna blog more! It becomes addicting, to just warn ya lol
    Love the autumn apron too.


Your thoughts are precious--please share them!
