I thought you might enjoy seeing my sketch book. I design the skirt and then do the figuring of fabric pieces that need cut using the Girls Skirt Sizing Chart as a guide for the size it needs to be when finished. Then I figure how much fabric and trims need to be purchased to make one. My daughter will take my mom to the local discount craft store and she will choose the fabrics and trims and buy them for my Christmas gift. It's a wonderful arrangement as she gets to have the fun of choosing the fabric and spend time with my daughter and I get to design the skirts and add them to my shoe box gifts.
I'm thinking I should call them the "Twelve Skirts of Christmas."
Here is the finished skirt from the sketch above.

Do you have a sketch notebook you keep crafting ideas in for your shoe boxes?
