This former English teacher had to look up the correct spelling. Turns out, “modelling” is the British English way, and “modeling” is the American English way. I will be British today, thanks to the dreary weather.
Forced Modelling, that’s not the same as child labor, is it? No? Good. 😉
I knew it would not take me long to put my new fabric to use. I thought I would do something just a little different that a regular skirt – a tiered skirt. Say it with me…oooooooooh!
As simple as they are to create, it was something that I just haven’t done. I was not in the mood to play around with length and widths, and how long should each piece be. Blah, blah, blah. I wanted instant gratification!
With a quick search I was able to stumble across Chica & Jo and their tier calculator. Now, I like math as much as the next person, (you know you do…) but instant gratification does not involve sketches and numbers. I didn’t read their instructions (sorry!), just kind of put it together how it logically made sense to me.
And with the little bit of leftover fabric – a tie for amatching brother/sister set.
Ahh, yes. My little models. It is amazing what 3 little chocolate chips can do.
(for the record…I have no idea what they are looking at. I do know that “find elmo in mommy’s camera” usually brings on the cheese face, which I am not a fan of. They are silly all day long until the camera comes out.)
This guy…he tugs at my heartstrings. Have you seen the movie Love Actually? He reminds me of little Sam with that scruffy, crazy hair. I love it! And funnily enough, that was almost Thing 2’s name.
March. March. March. March. I believe that was Thing 1’s mantra.
You can find both of these in the shop. I have already made a few custom sizes in these, so don’t be shy to ask for the size you want!
Happy Grey, Rainy Thursday! Go have a cuppa!
