Angelina is 8 years old and she LOVES wearing the layered "Peasant" Skirts. Having never made one before -- I thought I would give it a try.
The fabric is a fine corduroy from Joann's and it was a real bargain -- 60% off plus an additional 30% off coupon for the entire order -- I can't pass up those types of deals!
I used a great little tutorial from JCaroline Creative! that has since disappeared. It looks as though the business has shutdown and the tutorial is GONE.
It was an awesome tutorial that included an online calculator that provided exact measurements for width and length of fabric pieces after you enter a waist line number into the formula.
|Here is the tiny doll skirt -- so cute!|
So now that I've worked my way through this skirt -- I can cut into the beautiful Easter Pink Linen that I also picked up at Joann's. (Did you visit when the Clearance Fabrics were an additional 50% off of the CLEARANCE price ? woohoo !!).
With the linen, I will attempt to make Angelina and her mom (Dari) matching mother, daughter skirts for Easter - or Spring
|I did french seams so there are no raw edges|
|Another French Seam|
|I hope she loves this skirt -- I had fun making it!|
Have a wonderful week all -- Linking up to Connie's Linky Party Tuesday and Fabric Tuesday at Quilt Story! Go checkout the awesome things that creative people make! (see my sidebar for the links)...
