I LoooVe this one...


For those of you who don't know Nie Nie, you are probably thinking, "that's a cute name for a skirt!". For those of you who do know Nie Nie you are probably wondering why I named it after her. Well, I'll tell you. It's because I absolutely LOVE her! Up until June she was someone I had never met, but adored through her blog. In June, I was blessed enough to meet her and her husband in person and I can honestly say that she is an Angel and he is truly her Sweet-Heart. They are a beautiful couple and she is a ray of sunshine! As I was driving home the thought came to me that I should name a pattern after her (if it was okay with her) and donate a portion of the sales to her recovery. I asked her, and she was delighted! So here it is The Nie Nie Skirt!







I designed it with Stephanie in mind and I think it captures her uplifting, free spirited, and cheerful personality. I hope you like it!

Make it for someone you love in her honor and together we can help in her recovery.

I love you Nie Nie!

Great skirt and one of my favorites also! I have three grandchildren this would look great on. I also read Nie Nie and what a great thing you are doing to help them out. It's an amazing story and what a beautiful family.

It is obvious that God has given you a gift. Your patterns are beautiful and so are your models. You have a gift of design and how you match up your colors. Great job.The NeNe Shirt is so cute.
