Made By A Fabricista: Mommy and me skirts for Christmas!


HI Fashionistas! 

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

  1. beautiful Vatsla! I love both of your tops, with the ruffles and the bow. Both of you look so cute together! I would have loved to have seen the jammies. Would they have been "onesies"? Love the owl earrings too!

    Merry Christmas and hopefully when you return, you will have your new bundle of joy!
