I need help. I have been reading a lot of great threads lately on patterns and just coping RTW and such.
Here is my dilemma…Abigael and Giselle, Most of you know of them as I have a few threads that I have mentioned my girls in!! Love love love both of them as they are really totally different…But this is my frustration and I am sure some of you will get a great chuckle out of this as you read..
Giselle, My 5 year old…..girlie girl…loves the high heals, loves the sparkle, loves the dresses, skirts, and it is all about the dressing…
Wow I am telling you she is already having meltdowns at her age if she doesn’t think it is cute!!
Abigael, My 10 year old, Beautiful, loves her jeans, and tennies…will on occasion where the skort (what she calls a skort)..(a skirt but hidden underneath is shorts) She at one time wore other things but mostly liked her jeans and T’s and such…
Just went shoe shopping and I wanted to pull my hair out. Ok so I am more like my younger daughter.. I am praying that my oldest..I really am ok with her casual sense of style it is the looking like I haven’t even bathed look is what doesn’t excite me and not caring how her casual look looks frustrates me…I am really holding my tongue alot!!
But now I am stepping in a bit..I just thought this year her 5th grade year she would be more conscience about it…but maybe next year..
Ok to my pattern question….
I need to know if it is possible to take RTW skirts. ya know the cute shorter ones they are all wearing.. and attach a short underneath so it looks like first it is not there as well as not looking like I added too much bulk to the waist line.
Or is there a pattern out there somewhere too?
But Now it is not your skort as I know what a skort is… like a panel in front to make it look like a skirt and in the back it looks like shorts!This is not what I want..I want the skirt to look like a skirt and then hidden underneath is the shorts…
Thanks in advance for any suggestions, links, patterns, anything..I am hoping to get my daughter a little more kept looking if you know what I mean…I would not classify her as a true Tom Boy as she still loves to be a girl she just doesn’t like to dress up at all!! I want her to start looking like we aren’t homeless..I know that sounds bad but this too will pass right? I need encouragement!!
