Maggie Rae and all the other kindergartners are having a 50’s sock hop at school to celebrate the 50th day of school. As soon as I got the info I knew pink and poodles were in my near future. I mean really…what else would a girly girl wear to a sock hop?!?
Now I am not a fan of Halloween. I just don’t get all the scary stuff but it never fails the kiddos have some sort of costume need this time of year. So now my whole crew will have 50’s theme attire for the Fall Festival this weekend.
I am no seamstress and my awesomely talented Mom was super busy so I had to improvise with this No-Sew Poodle Skirt by Victoria at ObSUESSed. She did an awesome job simplifying this project. Hey if I can do it…you can do it! Unfortunately, I found her tutorial after I had already attempted Maggie’s. Ummm can you say…disaster! Mom to the rescue! She saved me for sure and I was able to use Victoria’s tutorial for Cate’s skirt. Whew!
The only thing I changed was I did add a wee bit of sewing by stitching the edges rather than leaving them raw. Straight lines = no biggie. You can totally skip this step just depends on the look you are going for.
Here is my Maggie girl ready for her party!
This whole project was all a bit nostalgic for me. The oldie classics is what I grew up on. My mom was a fan therefore my sister and I knew all the lyrics. We had a LONG car ride to and from school so these tunes got us through it.
I’ll share the rest of the fam all decked out this weekend!
Fantastic weekend planned with lots of Fall goodness. Bring it on!
