Pettiskirt Goodness

Wow, it’s been a while since I last posted. What can I say other than…~”It’s summer time and the livin’ is easy”~

:) For the past two weeks I’ve been in a bit of a sewing stump. (This is partly due to the fact that I’ve been too busy playing ff13 again, and also cuz it’s sooo hot) Anyways, excuses aside I finally got to finishing my niece’s pettiskirt. I started like two weeks ago, and stopped since it was super annoying to make (even more than mine was!) and I’ve been procrastinating ever since. But, I finally decided enough was enough and I finished sewing the pettiskirt today. Boy, did it feel great looking at all its ruffly glory. I also learned a lesson today, procrastination=very bad.

Here are some pictures of the pettiskirt:

Pretty ruffles!

For this skirt, I bought 3 yards of purple nylon chiffon, and 2 yards of lilac nylon chiffon. Then I cut the purple into long strips that were 6″ wide, and the lilac into strips 2″ wide. Then came loads of ruffling and sewing, and ruffling and some more sewing. I followed this tutorial.

The annoying part was sewing the ruffles onto the purple chiffon. Why? because of this:

The ruffles went a littleĀ  really crazy and kept folding upon itself(themselves?) It was a p.a.i.n to unfold the ruffle, then sew, stop sewing, unfold the ruffle, sew etc. >_<

Annoyingness aside, I’m really glad I made this skirt. My niece is happy with it and so am I :)

(She also made me wear my skirt and then we spun in circles together)
