Blend Geofabulous Skirt & Shirt

No matter how much fall baking or decorating I do it doesn’t change the fact that it’s still over 100 degrees here!  Everything in the stores is long pants, long sleeves and sweaters. I decided to make this fun girl’s outfit – perfect for a HOT September day.  The fabrics are from Blend’s Geofabulous fabric line.  The colors are amazing!


The tiered skirt pattern is from the Sassy Skirts book, my go-to skirt book for girls.  Super quick & easy!

The matching shirt needed a little embellishing.  I decided to try something beyond my standard quick appliqué shirt.  To make a ruffle for a shirt, cut a 3.5″ strip by 2 times the length of the neck from shoulder seam to shoulder seam.  Sew a rolled hem on both lengths of the ruffle.  Then hem the 2 ends.  Sew a gathering stitch down the center and gather.  Fit the ruffle around the neck, pinning as you go.  Then sew along the gathering stitch.  I had plans to add a flower, but I ran out of time.



Super quick an easy – and better than getting in a hot car and driving to the store to look for a new skirt.  It’s 108 today!
