So remember when I entered that contest for the pettiskirt? Well, I didn't win. Bummer for me, but I had already decided that I was going to make some for the girls either way. This one is for Charleston Chew and it turned out so cute. When I picked out the colors all I kept thinking about was Sunshine Generation. Do you remember that singing and dancing group? I always wanted to be in it. Anyway, now that the skirt is finished it keeps reminding me of a chick...perfect for my little chickie, Charley. Yellow seems to fit her.
Just so everyone knows, this skirt isn't as hard to make as it looks. In fact, it was a lot of fun although it was time consuming because there are a lot of ruffles to sew. I used the instructions from Martha Stewart and the tips from the Grosgrain blog. I know Miss L's will go even faster now that I've done one. Shhh! They are for her birthday party in April.
*I got the fabric here for $1.52 a yard...but shipping was $10.00. I need to look around because I'm sure they have this at fabric stores. I'm wondering if it goes by a different name because it's more like tricot then chiffon...I'll stay on the lookout.
