Here are the end results. Im chuffed that it turned out well (and the bottom of the skirt was even!!). I even went shopping for a matching top and scored big time with a top and jumper / vest for next to nothing. I love the end of season sales! To sweeten the deal, they match perfectly. A matching brooch, some hair clips and the ensemble is done.
Shot of skirt with abit too much flash.
The top and vest match perfectly. Funny how these things happen sometimes. I went in looking for a summer top to match and couldnt find a thing! The brooch is made by me.
Miss G modelling the skirt. I didnt ask her to stand like that. I think she's been paying lots of attention to the catalogues that come in the mail.
This was the original skirt. I spent two hours trying to get the flipping pin attached to elastic and tie through the waist casing. By the end of it I just figured it would be easier to make a new skirt (which it was). I think my kids learnt some new words whilst I was trying to thread the elastic through.
The quantity of material for this skirt is alittle excessive in my opinion anyway so I will cut it in half and make two skirts. Its just too cute to be put in the uncompleted pile.
Hope you're having a great weekend wherever you are.
