My daughter has been going through the obligatory phase that it seems every little girl cycles through: horse obsession.
With all of the products that are currently vying for her attention, many of which we will never allow her to own, horses are something that I am willing to indulge her in a little bit (as long as its not these horses).
So, when the Lands End Kids catalog arrived in the mail the other day, and she flipped through and saw these:
I wanted to be able to get them for her; even if there were other options that better suited my taste, it felt good to approve of something that she loved (as opposed to a High School Musical shirt with Zac Efron splashed across the front - she's 5!).
While the skirts were more expensive than I would typically pay, I had decided that we would probably buy one outfit as part of her back to school wardrobe.
Imagine my excitement when browsing Hancock fabric the other day, and I came across their new fall arrivals: chocolate brown corduroy with horses!
For 1/4 of the price of the Lands End skirt, I was able to get more than enough fabric to make her one myself. She is thrilled, and I am excited to get started sewing again!
