Blue Flower Skirt

This was a quickie skirt I made. I had a customer at work offer me this huge amount of leftover fabric that she had... this was one of the many cute prints.

I actually really like this skirt, but it didn't take more than an hour to do. It's a basic elastic waist, with two side seams. All of them are reinforced though, so there are no raw edges anywhere to be seen. The bottom white trim was actually made from a pillow case that I cut up. I didn't like the feel of it on my head so I just cut up the one I hadn't used. Gave a really crisp feel at the bottom and holds the skirt stiff there which is cool.

So without further ado, the skirt - plus some fun shots where I got carried away jumping. Tried to show off how it puffs out. ;o)


Don't ask how many times I tried that shot... my legs are stiff from landing in heels! XD

Blocks Apron

Cute little apron that reminds me of cupcake sprinkles! The perfect thing to bake while wearing this!

Patchwork Skirt

This was my large item for MareMare in the Make-A-Friend swap. It took a serious amount of time to sew, putting together the layers, and using a gathering technique to get that little ruching effect. I also had to reinforce the stitches after a certain incident... But they're all very strong seams. Vertical and horizontal.

I love the little house on the prairie feel that this has. Kind of a Cutesy-Shabbyness to it.
