I started out with this skirt that I obtained from a thirft store. However, it was made more for me but it would not be something I would actually wear in public. No way! I did love the applique tho... I wanted it for myself.
I pulled it off with a seam ripper. I will save it for later!
Next I turned the skirt inside out and marked where with pins her waist would be. I cut away the rest of the skirt and sewed it together.
Next I began to sew on that ruffle! It started to get fun when I had several layers on and putting it under my sewing foot!
Now I ran out before I could complete the entire skirt. So I ran a gathering stitch on that little piece and pulled it through to make a "poof" or flower sort of shape.
Then I attached it to the skirt above the ruffle. And we are done!
Lily has not actually seen it yet. I just finished it after her birthday party. I hope it fits. making gifts for children esp since they are not my own I really hard b/c I don't have measurements nor can I make them try it on!
It is totally pink and cosmic. Perfect for any princess!
