Keira needed a pair of pants to wear under her Easter dress so I modified the ruffle pants pattern to only have a single "fuller" and wider ruffle. Then just for fun I added a cinch pull on the sides of the ruffles (I had gotten the idea from a Matilda Jane catelog).
Here is a side view.
I have enjoyed sewing again! What's happening next you ask? These adorable paper pieced feathers by The Sometimes Crafter!
Ear piercing is so much easier then I remember. The "guns" they use just look like little plastic squares and the earring backs are now covered so there is nothing poking out the back. Keira did great - only a few tears were shed.
