I made a skirt! It's a St. Patrick's Day skirt for Susannah. I so enjoy St. Patrick's Day. My name is Irish (I think the traditional spelling has an 'h' and maybe an extra 'e' in there somewhere, though) but I am not of Irish descent. I just like the idea of mischeivous leprechauns and pinching people and eating green food and rainbows and luck and stuff like that. Also, my birthday is the day before St. Patrick's Day and I think any lingering birthday excitement has just always been carried over into the 17th. Ooops. I'm skirting the issue, aren't I? Back to the reason for this post:
[I should know better than to say "smile" because it always leads to a unnatural smile like this - just try to focus on the skirt.]
I followed this tutorial from Melissa at The Polka Dot Chair - a great crafty blog. I altered the waisband a bit, but ended up with the same result - a full, twirly skirt that Susannah loves to wear!
Here's a close-up of the fun, green fabrics I used:
I think that making more skirts is definitely in my future. It was an easy task for a beginning sewist such as myself and it was fun!
