Mom and Me Yoga-band skirts

March_2011_005

This was the result of one nap time, and three un-needed t-shirts. My skirt is an XL men's Hanes shirt (I bought it months ago because it was cheap, high quality jersey) and my band is the bottom 8" of a jersey shirt that was quite tight on me, and just too short. 

Ming Wai's skirt is a size small men's t-shirt - one of Dad's cast-off's. (It has a mysterious schmear of gum or putty on the front that we couldn't wash out.) 

I have to admit, mine was a little frustrating to make...and reminded me why I so RARELY sew clothes for myself. See, four year old girls don't have any CURVES. It's quite easy to make skirts and dresses for a cereal-box shaped mannequin...it's quite another thing to try and find flattering seams for all a mama's curvy bits. Oh well - if nothing else, I think I just made myself a marvelously comfortable, and spring-y maternity skirt. Which would be great, if I were pregnant. Which I'm not. 

Pregnant, I mean. I'm not pregnant. (Do you hear me, Mom?)

You had me going there for a second! I never sew for myself but think I need to. These look great! I might try some yoga pants. If I wasn't still scared of sewing with knit fabrics that is.... I really need to conquer this fear!! Aaagghhh.
