Suspender Skirts for Grandaughters

Suspender skirts made
from upholstery fabric.
I got the idea for these
skirts from Sew Country
Chic. She makes some
really cute clothes for
her daughters and herself.
Check out her blog.
Center strap added to keep the shoulder
strap from falling off shoulders. Justine's idea for this
was great. http://www.sewcountrychick.com/2012/10/a-folksy-suspender-skirt.html

  5. Too cute, Judy! I love the idea of using upholstery fabric...it will wear well for a long time...and the choices are just so pretty! The center strap idea is fabulous...sort of reminds me of a Heidi-look! Your granddaughters are so beautiful...grammie must just swallow them up in hugs all the time!

    With love,

    1. Thank you Laura.. Some one in my son's church, gave this roll of unholsery fabric to me. I really didn't know what to do with it. I cut off a couple yards and put in the washer [to test how it would wash and feel?].It was just perfect!!
      Love them hugs... I get plenty from 5 grandkids.ha
