Today I’m happy to have Rachel. Rachel was another early blog follower, and regularly pays me sweet compliments, which is how she got in this series. Kidding – she really does give sweet compliments, but I’m lucky to have her here, not the other way around.
3. For the hem, I took Dana’s advice and did a minimal hem, so it wouldn’t take away from the skirt’s spinning abilities. But a little green bias tape would be pretty cute, so I might go back and add it 🙂 For now, I just edge finished, ironed 1/4 inch, and sewed.
4. For the top, this was so easy and fun. I have sewn sleeves, and for some reason that is my least favorite part of sewing. So this method allows you to skip the sleeve step entirely 🙂 I literally cut two squares, 16 inches by 16 inches. Then I edge finished, and ironed over 1/4 inch.
I’d love you to come visit me at Family Ever After!
Thanks Rachel! So readers – do you have any refashion ideas for her?

And her Duffle Bag – cute in pink, but equally easy to do in boy colors if, like me, you’re in a boy household.
