Easter Mommy Skirt

I love matching for Easter! It's one of my favorite things to do! And my hubby is such a good sport to wear whatever color I make, whether it is a tie or a bow tie. The hardest part is a skirt for me. There are so many great tutorials out there but my biggest hurdle was always "how do I get that thing over my not-so-small hips?" Well, I found an awesome tutorial from Sewing a Straight Line. The instructions were very easy to follow and even came with VIDEO. I added some lace at the bottom to give it a little extra kick. And guess what??? I used a BED SHEET! HA! I saved a ton on fabric costs. The bed sheet was enough for my skirt, both of the rompers for the boys, and hubby's tie, and then some!

This was no joke, such an easy skirt to make and not only did it fit nicely, it was oh so comfy. It took me more than an hour because I've got two amazing and awesome tornadoes running around. But other than that, I'm sure it would take only an hour.

Hope you all had a lovely Easter!
