Well hi welcome to my little blog. Just my little corner of craftiness, sewing, and refashioning. I am also a newly gluten free eater so you have a little bit of recipes mixed in here.

Cosmic Pink Princess Skirt

It has been quite busy around here! Luckily birthdays and baby showers have ceased for the moment so I can play catch up! This is a refashion that I did for Lily's birthday. It all started when Sonja gave me some of this organza-like pink/blue/yellow trim that was her grandmother's. She said here, you will probably make something out of this before I do. Then it was decided that we would make something for our other resident princess (besides myself) in the troupe, Lily.

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!

When my girls were little they would have loved a skirt like this. I hope Lily likes it.
