So begins SKIRT WEEK!
I am excited to show you how to make some
Let's start off with the simplest first.
I call this the Ribbon Accent Skirt.
It is amazing how a little ribbon can make such a big difference.
Gather your ribbon, I didn't buy any of this ribbon for this skirt,
I just happen to have all this pink ribbon about.
But any combination of colors would be SO cute!
I think I am going to make a navy blue one, maybe a purple.....
maybe a yellow with white ribbon....
I'm getting distracted, as you can see...
Your limits are your own imagination!
Sew a simple rectangle skirt.
I cut out two 10"x 41" rectangles, and sewed them together.
I hemmed the bottom and made a casing for the elastic on top.
I didn't add the elastic yet, because it will be a million times easier to sew in the ribbon,
without the elastic in.
Lay out the ribbon.
This was my original plan on how I wanted the ribbon,
but I got lazy and simplified.
Sew the ribbon on!
I have mentioned this before, but I will say it again.
I am not a huge fan on straight pins.
I don't like taking the time to use them,
so when I sewed the ribbon on,
I just went for it!
And Hey! It turned out pretty straight!
I wouldn't take a ruler to it, but for a not stop 3 year old,
who will be wearing this,
no one will notice!
Add your elastic, and your done!
I thought it needed a little extra something,
so I made a little burned edge rose that I added on.
I want to see what you have made so head over to flikr,
and add your pictures!
