Thomas the Tank Engine Skirt!

 This is the skirt I made for a little girl who is mad about Thomas but who's Mum likes her to be girly!

It is a double layer skirt with a simple elasticated waist. I made it in the same was as this skirt but made two skirts, one shorter than the other and sewed them together at the top before making the waistband.

If only little e would wear skirts (for longer than just to model them), I could have such a good time making lots of crazy ones like this:)

Off to play nurse now, little e has chicken pox!


  1. Looks fabulous!!! You've co-ordinated the two fabrics beautifully. Hope there's not too much scratching with the chicken pox.

  2. Great idea - bet the little girl will be 'chuffed' to bits :)

    Ooh, chicken pox - my eldest 2 have had it, my daughter was only 3 months old at the time and she was covered, bless her! Big hugs to little e xx

  3. This skirt is so cute, loved the color combination also.thanks for sharing!

  4. What a fun skirt!!
    Hope the chicken pox goes soon!

    Thanks for linking to a Round Tuit!

  5. This is such a fun skirt! Great job at taking a traditionally "boy" print and making it into a girl's style--as mommy to a little tomboy, I just love this!!!

    Lots of luck with the chicken pox--not fun! Hang in there :)

  6. Oh what an adorable skirt! Great choice mom! Thanks for sharing at tip toe thru tuesday!
