During our recent travels to Hawaii we happened to stumble across a gorgeous wee craft fair one afternoon. It was here that I met the lovely Natasha from MaNini Sunshine. Natasha is an amazing seamstress. Her creations are beautifully hand made and she uses the most stunning fabrics. It was also here that I feel in love with (and purchased) a Ribbon Skirt for Maddy.
From memory it was no more than USD$30.00 but I can't stress enough how much work has gone in to this and how much it would have cost in New Zealand for the same thing. (In my opinion haberdashery supplies in this country are ridiculously priced - but I digress)...
There are hundreds and hundreds of lengths of satin ribbon attached to this skirt and each piece has been cut by hand with a hot knife to they won't frey or unravel. The waist band is completely adjustable by a secret opening on the inside so the skirt will fit your wee one from two years right up until around five years.
I can't wait until Maddy is a little bigger and I can pop her in it :) Check out Natasha's Etsy Store. She is well worth a look. You won't be disappointed!
