The Rosh Hashanah skirt
Posted 16 September, 2014on:
Last year I decorated a t-shirt for my daughter for Rosh Hashanah. She was very happy with it, but it didn’t match anything she already owned. So I promised her that this year I would make her a matching skirt.
Let’s just say that the last 12 months has gone really fast! Rosh Hashanah was looming on the horizon and I still hadn’t gone shopping for a skirt pattern. So I took advantage of the fact that (a) my daughter is young enough to appreciate anything I sew for her (b) I have a stash of groovy fabric (as seen in my Rosh Hashanah challah cover) and (c) the internet is full of useful sewing blogs explaining how even people like me – with very limited sewing skills – can still easily rustle up a fun skirt.
It’s loud, it’s proud, and my daughter loves it. Maybe next year I should make my husband a matching kippah?
