I dusted off the ol' sewing machine to make Quinn this skirt. I think it turned out good considering I was just trying to copy one of her other skirts that I love. The lining fabric I used is a little too thick so it doesn't seem as flowy as the other skirt. But I love the idea of horizontal pleats with a ruffle underneath. I think I'll make her one more so I can perfect it a little more. (I think my ruffle needs to be a little higher under the pleats- and next time I'll use a lighter weight liner).
I patterned it after this skirt of hers:
And one of my new friends gave me the best tip ever. You can WASH swim diapers! I'm talking disposable swim diapers that you usually just rip off and throw away. Slide that sucker off their legs and throw it in the washing machine with their swim suit and let it air dry. And good as new! I don't think it has unlimited uses, but I've already done it a handful of times and I can't tell a difference. Talk about a money saver. We go swimming almost every day around here. This summer I've already had Hendrix in a cloth swim diaper because I know he won't poop in it. But I didn't want to put Veda in one because she still might poop while at the pool and I don't want to clean up that mess. But now I can just put a disposable one on her, and if she poops I can throw it away, and if not, I can just wash it! You're welcome :)
