Matilda Jane Giveaway WINNER! …and a birdie outfit makeover

Hooray for WINNING!! Well, despite a network that is on the fritz [read: dead.], I am still happy today because I get to share who wins the $50 Matilda Jane clothing gift card giveaway, wheeee!

But first… Another little clothing makeover for Sis…

Can I just let you in on a little secret? I don’t actually love some of the things I make for Sis. I’m trying to get better about choosing fabrics and styles I love, but it’s a work in progress.

Such was the case with the above outfit. The skirt just wasn’t doing it for me somehow.

So I thought I’d tweak the skirt a bit…

But after removing the skirt’s elastic, I decided to just go a different direction, so I made–wait for it, huge shocker here–a pair of ruffle pants.

Of course, you KNOW the pocket also had to make the jump! Easy enough to remove this patch pocket from the skirt and add it to these pants.

Ahhhhh, much better.
