Hi there readers,
wow this time of the year is crazy with sewing for Christmas but no time for blogging. I completed quite a few things the past few weeks just haven't posted. Last month I sewed a flip creation but just didn't have time to post it but here I am determined to be in time for the December flip this Pattern over at Frances Suzanne of the Number 9 trousers by Shwin Designs
It is a great pattern and one I would use again for both Arthur and Isabella.
For the flip I cut off the pattern right underneath the side pockets, straightened out the inner leg seams and made a little bubble ruffle skirt for Miss Bella. I finished it just in time for her to wear to her preschool Christmas program and also some pics with Santa in town.
the ruffles are one 1inch ruffle followed by two 2inch ruffles and then finished off with 2 3 inch ruffles.
 I used red denim thread to accent all the topstitching!

 And this is us the van den Berg's (minus Lucy :(  )
A Merry Christmas to you and Yours!

Till Next Time......

Head on over to Frances Suzanne for the other entries and sew alongs!


  1. This is darling! I love the denim with the red ruffles. Great flip!

  2. What girl doesn't love a bit of ruffles??? I'm so glad to see you create this outfit for dual purposes: "flip this pattern" and pictures with Santa / holiday wear! Smart thinking.... especially when sewing {and blogging} time is scarce!


Hi ,
I would love to hear from you
