Where the HELL is my chiffon?

« on: May 09, 2011 10:45:13 AM »

I've been on a skirt making kick recently! I pretty much live in skirts during the summer, and having a serger makes sewing them so fast.  They're all from various patterns and tutorials, so I'll include the sources for you all.  


I intended for this one to fade from pink to white, but I didn't quite get the effect I wanted


Both of these skirts are the Saturday Market Skirt from Sewing Bits and Pieces, the free PDF pattern is available at http://portabellopixie.typepad.com/PDF/SaturdayMarketSkirtFreePattern.pdf


The Colorful Brick Road Skirt again from Sewing Bits and Pieces.  I sized it up to fit me because really, who of us isn't still a kid at heart?  P.S. doing a rolled hem on the ruffles was seriously headache-inducing.


This is the Deluxe Rectangle Skirt from Little Green Dresses

Look! Bright green pockets! These make me happy Cheesy


The Market Skirt from Made. Tutorial found at http://www.dana-made-it.com/2008/07/tutorial-market-skirt.html

I added tie pockets using this pattern: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=38097.0

Phew that was a lot! Thanks for looking & let me know what you think!

I am trying to turn all of my non crafty friends and relatives into crafters. It's like a cult. I want everyone to become addicted to my obsessions!

Now if only the weather will cooperate long enough for me to wear them all!  Of course I'll be regretting that comment come July  Wink
