Woohoo! Skirt happy dances!

Honestly I don't know why I always do this but I always put off finishing the last couple of steps as if admitting that a piece is finally finished is the hardest part. I sewed the bottom tier on earlier this week and it's been sitting waiting for me to make the steps needed to hem it.

That said I did kinda want to use the overlocker so I had to wait until I got to my parents house today to stick it through mum's machine. So 20 minutes later because I had a thread break and I had to re-thread the whole machine (not fun at all) the overlocking was done and as soon as I got home I sewed up the hem.

She ABSOLUTELY loves it!

 I could barely get her to stand still to get some photos. But I also wanted to try getting some while the skirt was spinning.... It failed but this look lovely anyway!

This skirt was made using the waist of an old pair of jeans and adding two gathered tiers of fabric below. The bottom of the skirt is quite wide but I love how much it swirls which was the plan.

I didn't use a pattern but I will be making another one as well with a darker fabric so between the two of them I will try and write up some basic instructions.... There really was no particular plan just to use a pair of pants up that couldn't be used anymore.

Happy Stitching,
Caitlin
