Fancy 4th of July

July 1, 2010

After seeing this skirt on Crafterhours skirt week challenge, i knew it would make a great 4th of July skirt.  It was made using Pink Figs Nie Nie skirt  pattern. It was time consuming, with all that gathering.  BUT 2 things that helped speed up the process were not hemming the layers (i did a rolled hem) and using the serger to gather. And just incase you were wondering the tulle is a nylon chiffon (so soft and no fraying) and i did make the attachment for that layer out of fabric.

With the left over material i made a matching shirt (and i one for myself too). Hopefully she will be a good little model on the 4th and i will have some real pictures to show.

    Great outfit. There’s a quick way to gather by changing the top tension. The tute is on my blog in the tutorials section.
