The Veiled Purl

All about crocheting, sewing, and knitting.


Pettiskirt Goodness

I finally got to finishing my niece’s pettiskirt.

Here are some pictures of the pettiskirt:


My niece absolutely loved it! And I was soo happy to see her being happy. =]


I love the purple and lilac/pink combo :)


(I love this pic)


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)
