Rebekah's Red & White Tiered Skirt...

I never thought, all those years ago when I first began to sew, that I would come to love it as passionately as I do now...

Paper craft was my first love then and I spent many pleasurable hours at my little table in the living area, crafting to my heart's content...
I still dearly love to make make cards and dream of someday picking up scrapbooking once again too...



Lately I have begun to enjoy sewing simple clothing items more... I have found that making clothes requires plenty of practice before it becomes something you do for pleasure...

Sometime last year I shared about the little tiered skirt I made for my sister, Sofia...
Shortly after completing this garment, I chose fabric for another skirt, this time for Rebekah.
But the material lay on my shelves for many months before I had a moment to put it together.

The other morning I made up my mind to work on it early in the day, even before breakfast.
By tea time that morning it was complete and Rebekah was all smiles as she tried on her sweet skirt for the first time!

 
 

I was so very pleased with the outcome...I had a delightful time creating it and realised how much I love to make clothes for my sisters...how I love it when little girls are dressed in a feminine way!  {{smiles}} 

And now for a few pictures of our little rosebud, Rebekah, wearing her pretty new skirt...

Rebekah is seven years old and is our quiet, creative sister..
She has a kind, giving heart...

 

Her favourite colour is red and for a while we would call her "Red-Bekah!"




Rebekah plays beautifully with brother, Caleb and is a wonderful help in our home...
Just the other morning she learnt how to use the mop and washed the kitchen floor for us most cheerfully indeed!


Sometime ago I wrote a character sketch on Rebekah...if you would like to read it, you can view the post on my previous blog over here.

And thus ends a simply wonderful sewing project!
I cannot wait to start working on something else!

Blessings on your week, sweet friends!
Thank you so much for stopping by, your visits bring a smile to my face!

This skirt is darling, Kelly-Anne. You did a fantastic job on it. What a talent it is to sew. My mom sewed many of my clothes growing up. Rebekah looks so sweet in her new outfit. That's my mother's name, so I will surely remember her. :)
