A friend invited me over so we could get started on our plan of sewing skirts for our daughters together. Here’s what I got done for Sophie:
We used this tutorial from Tanya at Grand Revival Designs but I changed just a few things. First off, I put the skirt on a peanut who wears 3T-4T rather than making it for a size 5 or 6 as listed; I wanted the skirt to go down past her knees and the dimensions listed were perfect for that.
Also, because the top layer fabric has little silver sprinkles that I thought might be kind of rough if I made the casing as listed, I added a separate band of the green fabric, which happens to be sooo soft, so perfect as a waist band!
Lastly, I clearly hemmed only one of the layers. : ) ‘Wonder what that unfinished eyelet edge will look like after its first washing…

And here’s something else I’ve been working on. Not a bunny. Better pictures when it’s all done, which will hopefully be tomorrow!
