j crew-y winter skirt

J Crew-y skirt

Happy Monday, friends. If you are a US reader, I hope your Thanksgiving was full of pie (and minus the terrible flu that’s been plaguing us around here). Actually, even if you aren’t a US reader, I hope your weekend was full of pie and minus the flu.

We are s-l-o-w-l-y starting to get back in the swing of things around here- my office/studio/craft room is nearly unpacked and Christmas-presents-in-the-making are strewn about (can’t wait to show you what I’m making). We even have a guest post lined up for this week, a house update in the works, and a fun project to show you today (like I said, getting back in the swing of things).

Last Spring, my sister-in-law asked me to make her a J Crew-y skirt. It is finally done.  Though, since Tricia is 8 months pregnant, she isn’t really able to wear it yet.

In the meantime, I asked our cute sister Kedron if she’d model the skirt for me.

Photoshoots with that girl are always an adventure-a hilarious adventure.

And the skirt is pretty cute too- not as cute as my sister, but pretty cute.

I think I took pictures along the way as I made it- I started it awhile ago. I will try to dig those up (and remember what I did!) so I can put together a tutorial. It’s too cute (in that classic, J Crew way) not to share.

Today, we’re participating in liZ and elizabeth’s “Skirting the Issue” series over at Project Run and Play. We’re beyond excited about this series- its goal is to collect skirts for girls in the foster care system. Come see our dotty skirt tutorial (and tons of other skirt ideas)!
