I've been working on these for about a year. At first they were going to be mommy and me dresses. I made the bodice for my dress and it didn't fit right, so I altered it and altered it and so on. In the end it was beyond being fixed. It took me a while to be okay with throwing it out, but eventually I did. Then I decided to start over and just make skirts. They are a basic circle skirt - one layer of maroon fabric and one layer of black lace over it and a thick elastic waistband. We both really enjoyed matching and got sweet compliments at church. I love my little mini me.
