A Princess Skirt

Last Fall we went to Disneyworld.  It’s my favorite Fall vacation, great weather in South Florida, lighter crowds and the Epcot Food and Wine Festival.   We’ve been a few times (one of the benefits of being within driving distance) and I don’t think I’d ever go in the summer again, after seeing how nice it is in the Fall.

Some friends were going down there at the same time and I heard they were going to the Princess Breakfast at Epcot, soooo I finagled my way into tagging along.  My girls are 16 and 10 and I knew we didn’t have too many more years left that I could drag them to a princess breakfast at Disneyworld. So the girls hit the Princess breakfast while the guys rode Soarin’ and Test Track a few times.

I’ll admit, I’m slightly neurotic about some things, and usually have more “ideas” than “time”  — I decided 2 days before we left that my daughter needed a “princess” outfit for the breakfast-  I knew she thought she was too “old” for a full princess dress, so instead I settled on a skirt and matching top (shirt was from Children’s Place).

My dream fabric was some Castle Peeps by Lizzy House, but it was not to be found at my local quilt shop.

I did however find this great Michael Miller print.  I picked up some coordinating pink fabric and used one of my skirt tutorials –  then finished off the bottom with jumbo rick rack.

Notice the bandage? Guess who fell off her bike on our way to the bus at Disneyworld?  Thank goodness for a very kind and prompt first aid station at Epcot.
