I was able to find time for a quick project though. I had a little bit of pink sheer fabric left and decided to make it to a tutu skirt for my 2-year-old niece, Helaena (Andrea already has a store-bought tutu). It was only 37 inches wide, apparently, not enough to make it ruffle a lot to make a tutu. So I ended up with a layered skirt instead.
I used pink gena silk for the skirt lining, and added 3 layers of pink tulle under the pink sheer fabric.
I sewed all 5 layers (gena silk skirt lining, 3 layers of tulle, pink sheer fabric) together, and then added black elastic on top. I made the tulle a little bit longer than the outer fabric.
I finished the skirt in around 2 hours last Saturday and we gave it to Helaena in the afternoon when we went to my mom's house. And here she is wearing it last Sunday to go to church:
|Those shoes are all glittery and lights up when she walks... she loves them!|
