Hi there, it’s Heidi! I’m here to share the most perfect everyday skirt for you and your little one. I sewed up the girl’s and women’s Pierside Pencil Skirts from New Horizons Designs. It was seriously the fastest sew ever. There are three length options (knee, mid, and maxi) and three hem options (straight, curved, and curved side vents). You can even add pockets! I went for a simple straight knee length skirt for both me and my daughter. I didn’t add pockets to mine, but I definitely will in the future! This pattern is suitable for a wide variety of fabrics. I sewed mine up with a sparkly french terry from Hobby Lobby and used a stretchy cotton lycra for the waistband. I added a drawstring to my waistband as well, but this part is optional.
This skirt is the perfect way to dress up your mom wardrobe if you want to get out of your everyday shorts! It can easily be worn with your favorite tee, but can also be paired with a fancier shirt for a night out. I loved seeing my daughter in a skirt as well. She’s so little that she’s never worn a skirt before; she looks so grown up in hers! I am planning several more matching skirts for our wardrobe. Don’t hesitate to purchase this pattern and sew some up for yourself. It will quickly become one of your staple pieces!
How cute is it when Mommy and daughter can match! This pencil skirt sewn by Heidi is the Pierside Pencil Skirt by New Horizons. This pattern is flattering for both mommy and daughter and has several optional lengths and features like pockets and a drawstring waist.

So I constantly see posts online to the tune of: 'What exactly is X fabric?', 'What should I order online', 'I just wish I could touch it...'
Well, I am here to give you some insight. I'm hoping to do more and more of these posts over the next year so that by the end of 2015 if someone asks 'What is X fabric?', you are going to have the answers!
The temps are starting to drop, there is a crispness in the air, and every once in a while I catch a tree with leaves that are starting to change color. Fall is on the way, and we know what that means...... tedious hours spent transferring our kids wardrobes from summer to fall ;op Hahahahaha, but it also means some super awesome layering and great style. And the more you layer, the longer you can take getting that fall wardrobe pulled together.
Here are some great patterns from Terra's Treasures, and some fun ideas to layer and style them for Fall fashion fabulous-ness.
