This months projects are going to be skirts for me! With warm weather that should be here already & Easter fast approaching I need some skirts! Also my 3 daughters like wearing skirts too so this is a perfect time to design & create some new ones.
I love lace so I chose to sew a romantic skirt for my first skirt this month! This is a very easy project that I did this weekend. I cut out two rectangle pieces of fabric, measured of course & added a elastic for the waist.
I set my machine on a high tension so when I sewed the elastic to the lace fabric it would ruffle. I also had to pull gently on the elastic as I was sewing.
I always iron my seams!
I used my straight denim skirt as my underlay!
I initially just had a hem as you can see from the above pic but decided to add the black bias for contrast.
