I promised that at some point I would tell you more about the Hippy Chick Skirt that I made. Since my dear friend harassed me via phone today for not blogging…I suppose today is as good a day as any.
These are more shots from Michelle. Super fun, right? I used fabric from Kate Spain’s Fandango collection. (Oh….by the way, the pre-cuts of Central Park are arriving tomorrow!!!! CRAZY excited about that!) Back to this skirt – the pattern says that it goes for a size 10 girls to a size 8 in women – but with drop waist style and the strip work skirt, it could really be any size that you want with almost no trouble at all!
Now I did change the pattern a little teeny tiny bit. First of all, I added a couple little tucks at the waist. I felt like the drop waist was too poofy. I don’t know how else to describe that.
The second thing I did was to use Sports Elastic which I LOVE. It’s is SO easy and so so so comfy! I really honestly think I’ll make this change on everything I make! No more casings with elastic! This elastic is sewn straight to the the fabric. You mark the center and quarter points on both your elastic and the fabric, pin in place at those spots and then stretch the elastic in between while you sew so it fits in place.
So there ya go. My blog for today – a little more info on the few changes that I made. Hasta mañana! (or maybe that should be luego!)
