I recently interviewed Erin, owner of the Skirt of the Month Club to learn more about her inspiration and how she got into making these whimsical, adorable skirts. I love getting to know the person behind the business, since I feel it gives a little more of a personal touch to the wonderful creations they produce. Erin is a joy to work with, and is a very sweet person, too!
Here is a little more about her, in her own words:
"I'm a wife of ten years and a stay at home mom of two girls, ages 5 and 7. I grew up in a family full of very creative people, and some were/are really good at sewing. While I've always been good at more 'right-brained' pursuits, like art and dance, I was afraid to try sewing. I felt I would be lousy at it because it takes some patience and problem-solving! But I still put it on my bucket list of things to do, and finally got around to trying
it, expecting to hate it and that would be that. Well, I not only didn't hate it, but I actually took to it easily. The funny thing is that I was right about needing patience, but it actually helped me learn it instead of
being a source of aggravation. Well, most of the time!
Having two little girls is a huge inspiration for me. I love picking out fabrics and styles that I know they will like. A lot of the fabrics I pick are with them in mind, of what they will like and what I think their friends will like, too. It helps having two very different personalities! My older daughter likes pretty much anything, especially anything
Kawaii/Japanese or with cute animals, while my younger daughter is all girl and if it's pink or purple, she loves it! I personally love Woodland themes, or anything retro, so I like to mix those with my daughters' tastes! Picking fabric is the most fun and most addicting thing ever!
I also started sewing things for friends' kids and found I liked sewing for others, too, and that's what led me to opening an online shop. It's been so much fun, and an added bonus is that I've made some really great friends
through customers and other online sellers!"
I know I am glad she decided to try her hand (and her patience) at sewing, because her skirts truly are gorgeous. Just look at some of her designs:
