So for Easter I always make my daughter something This year I decided to make my first skirt. I had been saving up a rainbow brite sheet for a skirt for her for some time but was always too scared to try.. (suck at the sewing..) It took me far too long to make it because I have no real room for cutting and measuring i have to move it over and recheck and recheck the measurements... Then sewing was a rough start with sewing the ruffles on and seeing i didnt get the thread covered from the ruffle so seam ripping and resewing and then not getting it straight and seam rip and resew again LOL It was hard work but worth it since my daughter will not take it off! It wasnt too horrible looking when it was done I'm pretty proud of myself for not giving up though I REALLY REALLY wanted to! It was a lot of pain mentally and physically because of how my chair/desk is set up its not at the right level so my shoulder and back were killing me by the time I was finished LOL I will have to go ahead and replace the elastic though because it wont snap back into shape being so wide... It keeps fallin off her little hiney! lol
Here is my daughter Ellie (chocolate stains and all) doing her Easter egg hunt in the skirt! sorry for crappy picture I will try to get a better one later... This was taken in mostly shade and it was windy and cold so we didnt stay out long! The second pic her eye is all red because her hair kept hitting her in the eye and she kept rubbing it. You can really see what I mean about the elastic though right?! She would bend over to get an egg and it would look like she had 2 boiled eggs hanging above the top of her skirt where her panties would be taken down by the skirt and she was mooning us! Yea that will be fixed once I can get her to take it off and find the skinnier elastic! She loves it and that is what makes ALLLL the pain and annoyance worth it!

All and all its not too bad for my first attempt at a skirt Cheesy Here is the tutorial I used to make it! Cheesy
