I made my daughter a skirt for Easter. I decided to revisit my past pettiskirt experience. Whoooh! Sends chills up my spine just thinking about that beast. Anyways, I wanted to make her a skirt similar to the pettiskirt, but I wanted it to be a much more pleasant experience. And it was! I basically gathered strips of fabric to the waistband. However, the waistband was not sewn together when I gathered the strips of fabric; instead, I gathered the strips to a rectangle which later became the waistband. Once all of the strips were gathered and sewn together, I then matched and sewed the raw edges of the skirt together making a circle. Lastly, I made a waistband casing and threaded elastic through the waistband casing. Next time I will take pics of the process and write up a proper tutorial about it. I wasn't sure if it was going to work, so I didn't take any pics of the process. Contrary to my first experience, this skirt was really easy and fast to make. I think I'm going to make myself a pettiskirt using the same method.
Fabric: Little Honey (skirt) and Froth (under skirt)by Anna Maria Horner at Phat Fabric.
Trim: Shabby Chic Rose trim at Frog Feathers.
The sweater is hand knitted by my cousin Priscilla. She made it for my daughter's 7th birthday. I think it's simply beautiful and very thoughtful of her. It matches my daughters Easter skirt perfectly.
Have a blessed Easter!
