Need something Brown to wear for preschool

Although Sophia doesn't look happy in this photo, she loves her new little Brown skirt. Her preschool wants them to wear the color of the day that they are learning about that day and we didn't have anything brown. So what's a mom to do but whip up a quick skirt on the serger out of some scrap fabric and fancy trim.

So in fifteen minutes or less without a pattern, I cut the fabric, serged this skirt, added giant rick rack trim and an adjustable elastic waistband with buttons.

Sophia magically had a brand new outfit for school.

The good news is with the button adjustable waistband either of my girls can wear this new little skirt. It fits either one.  This is what the elastic band looks like when I adjust for skinny mini Kaylee.
