Before the fabric fun begins...

Just a quick post today before some friends arrive and I then spend the evening cutting fabric to make gorgeous ruffle skirts for my girls.  Fabric already washed and fire dried, so I am much looking forward to an evening measuring and cutting and envisioning being a fantastic seamstress!!

Today's outfit:

Skinny jeans, geometric top and pink cardigan. Accessorised with grey scarf with silver sparkles and brown boots for the school run. Black 'uggs' for home.

On seeing these pictures, I am thinking I really need to find a skirt style that suits.  What I have already makes me look frumpy.  Any ideas? I am thinking pencil skirts, but wondering how practical they are for looking after small people..
