  • Welcome to my blog!

    Hi! I'm Traci. I'm a nursing student and CNA who loves quilting, knitting, cross stitch, and the great outdoors. In my pre-scrubs life, I owned Real Photography, and you can still see my old wedding and portrait photography site here .

    I've created a map that shows links to our camping/hiking/general family fun review posts that you can find here. It's pretty much the coolest thing on this site. Thanks, Google!

    I great big puffy heart *love* comments, so please let me know you visited! I try to always reply!

wrap skirt revisited

I made a shortened version of the yard sale wrap skirt from Heather Ross’s Weekend Sewing this weekend.  I love it!  This Nicey Jane print is one of my favorite fabrics ever, so adding it to a twirly skirt is a little magical.  I can’t wait to bust it out in Disneyland!  (I do need a better skirt sweater–we’re heading to the big mall in Denver tomorrow where I will work on the sweater situation!)  I shortened the skirt by about 5 inches and with some careful cutting managed to make the pattern out of 3 yards instead of 4–woot woot!

And since Nic was taking action pictures of my skirt I had him take a couple of my central park skirt, too:

Susie - Oh Traci! These are both so adorable and YOU are adorable in them. Well done, lady!

Melissa - It looks really cute! So flippy and flirty and springy and fun. Good luck finding twirly-skirt sweaters! 🙂

Beth Moore - I hate you because of your cuteness. And I love you for it too. =)

Bekah - Too cute! I’ve been looking for a cute wrap skirt like this!
