if I only had a girl...

I'd make these pettiskirts for her



and decorate her room with colors from my new favorite book.

Aw. That skirt is delicious and those colors are the exact colors of Ryen and Maddie's room. You can borrow my girls anytime. They LOVE their Aunt Carrie! :)

awww, someday you'll have your little girl. Although, I bet Benson wouldn't mind an awesome skirt like that! We had the little boys at the preschool that would put on the high heels and grab a purse and stick their cars in them! It was awesome, but we didn't tell the dads...they always have a problem with that sort of thing! :)

Your girls are going to love having a mom like you. I love that tutu. What material do you think it's made out of? I am with you on the color thing too!

Hey Suz- The instructions for the skirt are here: http://www.marthastewart.com/portal/site/mslo/menuitem.3a0656639de62ad593598e10d373a0a0/?vgnextoid=fe5f088032e39110VgnVCM1000003d370a0aRCRD&vgnextfmt=default&rsc=ts_Homepage_Homepage

It's made out of chiffon, but you'll know that after you go to the link. :)

That link looks like it won't work, but if you'll just highlight it I promise it will take you there. It worked when I tried it anyway.

Megan said...

Okay Carrie. You need to start making these petticoats. Seriously. I went to your link and now I am determined to get Maddie one for her tea party-themed birthday this summer. (How cute would that be!!!) If you don't want to do it, that's totally okay, but heck- if I'm going to pay someone for it, it might as well be you. Seriously. Email me.

I just watched the video, how fun they are. I love them. Roz and Cel would love it. I think you should learn to make them and come and visit and teach me how to do it :)
