A skirt for my neice
I used to sew for my beautiful necie all the time when she was a lot younger. Now she is 9 I thought she would love a teired skirt. I got this fabric at Spotlight and it is exactly the same as a skirt I bought Ellyse from Big W.
I spent a lot of time working out the measurements, all in proportion to Ellyse's skirt, I wanted to get it just right. I am so very happy with it. It is the most professional job I have done so far. I really took the time to sit and think about the order I wanted to do it in and it worked out perfectly.
Eventhough I wasn't going for the twirly skirt look, I would still would have liked there to be a little more flare to the skirt. I am thinking that instead of cutting rectangles I should make the top part a little narrower. I will play around with it.
I have already given the skirt to M, I just couldn't wait. I am looking forward to seenig her and Ellyse wearing their skirts together!
My next sewing job is to finish the softie for my swap with girls from EB, and then I have drafted a pattern to copy a PP shirred top. I can't wait to try that, I think Ellyse definitely has enough bottoms!
