Hope you all are having a wonderful December. Mine is going by way too fast! I've been sewing up a storm lately. Last weekend, I wrapped up my baby shower dress and this past weekend, I finished these mommy and me skirts from a double-knit fabric:
For my daughter, I made a full circle skirt, and for myself, I made a maternity pencil skirt. I am seven months now!
Hers has a straight waistband and a zip on the back. Both hers and mine are self-drafted.
I used a black and white double knit that can be seen HERE

She has her very own custom clothier, and wardrobe department...
I styled this skirt two ways, 1st with a halter top with a bow, and next with this ruffle tee with 3/4 sleeves. Personally, I felt more "me" in the long sleeves, since I feel its a more balanced look, and the top is longer. I do love the halter with the bow. It's very chic!
Initially, I had planned on making mommy and me pajamas for Christmas morning. It is my annual tradition, but the fabric did not have as much of a stretch as needed, so I switched to skirts!
And here is my latest obsession. Owl earrings! I shared with you the last owl earrings I gifted myself HERE. Well here is another :)
That's all the fun I have to share with you! We put up our Christmas decorations yesterday morning and had some friends for a Christmas Party! It was so much fun. By the time you read this post, I will officially be in hibernation mode for the rest of the year!
Have a Merry Christmas! And I will see you next year!
But before I go... some final silliness from my kid
