Twirly skirt

Here's a skirt I made in my sewing class. It still needs a drawstring and it needs to be hemmed, but the general shape is there. It's very cute but doesn't look quite right on me so I don't think I'll ever wear it. The skirt is made from a Simplicity pattern that was very easy to follow, so I recommend it if you are a beginner and get easily overwhelmed by patterns, like I do. My next class project is a handbag, but I won't be able to start on that for a week. So I'm going to do a pillowcase for Ellie's bedroom next.




Thank you to Nana for the pretty fabric!

You're welcome! Are you sure you can't fix it so that you would like it better?

I tried bringing it in a bit, but I think ultimately I don't like short skirts on me. My legs are just too stubby.

Mommy, I'd really like for you to get me to bed. Daddy said it would be ok if you did it for the rest of my life. Sound good to you?

You do not have stubby legs.
