I've had this super cute fabric laying around my studio just waiting to be made into something. This is part of the free fabric bundle I got a while back.
I loved it because it was girly, and sweet, and it reminded me of Madeline, the little french girl in stories by Ludwig Bemelmans. We've read some of them to the kids and the girl seems to enjoy them. Then, we picked up some episodes of the cartoon series from Target for $5. I'll have to get the movie that was made several years ago and let the kids watch it.
I decided to make the girl a bubble skirt. The fabric is quite thin and flowy which makes it perfect for this project.
Bubble skirts are fairly simple to make and I'm sure there are many tutorials online somewhere if you need instructions.
My girl loves this skirt! Even though she is more of a dress fan, if the skirt is twirly and bouncy, it's a win in her book, and a win for me.
I think I will take one of her plain tees and add an Eiffel Tower applique to match the skirt. What do you think?
Oooh, oooh, ooh, maybe a beret as well...?
