Don't worry, I told the little devil "no" :o)

Don't you??
I seriously live in them in the spring/summer time.

This is one that I made for a darling reader, Irma, who asked if I would be willing to do a tutorial on one of these little layered skirts so she could make one for her daughter. She even sent me the extra-wide elastic, because they don't sell it where I live! So sweet!
I fully intended to do a tutorial.
But time got the best of me, and I ended up just making the skirt for her daughter :o) (I hope she likes it!) As soon as I finished it and tried it on, the little devil on my shoulder (yes, preacher's wives have those, too!) said "Keep it, Disney!! You can tell her you had a house fire and the skirt went up in flames!".
I love it.
a. lot.


I don't know why I spilled 90's on these photos....that's late-night Photoshop for you! :o)


Anyway, do think I should still do a tutorial for one? Would anyone else find that useful?
I don't have any more elastic, but I can fake it with a t-shirt waistband. (Love those!)

*Oh, and by the way! I don't normally wear skirts this short, I guess it doesn't work as well on a tall person! :o) I think I'll add another couple of ruffles to mine.

P.S. I hope this post finds everyone well and cheerful! :o)

  18. I'd love a tutorial since I'd love to make my own skirt! :-)
    Soooo cute and I love wearing dresses and skirts but since I am nursing my little baby dresses don't work too well, but skirts do, but my closets only got a few so I really need some more skirts. So please share the tutorial with us so I can make one for myself! (and I might make one for my five year old as well since it is such a pretty skirt...) :-)

    ReplyDelete
  41. Yes, please! I would love a tutorial!

    ReplyDelete
  42. Yes, yes, yes!
    Your site has inspired an idea for our school's silent auction. We are going to do a buy in party called Project Runway Day. It's in the planning stages, but we are hoping to take the girls to the thrift store and teach them how to repurpose sweaters, tanks, etc, make elastic headbands and belts. We were also tinkering with the idea of having the girls pick out some jersey to make the easy jersey skirt. :) (I think we might be the ones doing the sewing on that one....)

    ReplyDelete
  43. My daughter saw that and said "I want one!!!" I replied "me too!" So I hope that answers your question for our family!! We heart it!!!

    ReplyDelete
  44. Yes, please!! I love skirts like this, but i'm so short, the ruffles look weird on me, so it would be awesome to know how to make my own.

    ReplyDelete
  45. YES PLEASE!!! :) By the way, I'm new to your blog, and frankly, I'm giddy about it! Thanks so much for sharing!

    ReplyDelete

  80. Tutorial please! And can I say that I hear you on the too tall for short skirts! I'm just under 6' tall and I look like a giraffe in short skirts, plus I just feel totally uncomfortable. Sad news for us tall girls, because they can look so cute on other people. I can't wait to make this skirt and make it long enough for even the most giraffe like create :)

    ReplyDelete
  81. PLEASE, oh please do a tutorial! One with a few more ruffles for us over 40 crowd... : )

    ReplyDelete
  82. I am just sayin' I LOVE that skirt. I think I had few similar ones "back in the day". I would love some more!...with a few more ruffles...ruffles make everything better. I would have had a little devil on my should too. OK, so this is my first visit to your blog..and I seriously do not know how that is even possible...your blog rocks (but you already know that, eh?). Of course I am a follower...now off to make my project for Monday's post.

    ReplyDelete
  96. I'm an Italian girl (35 years old... Is it right to say "girl"?) and please forgive my English, especially written English. It's about 5 months that every day I click on you web site and look at the beatiful things you made. And beatiful pictures too!! I'd like very much doing something with my hand but I dont have a sewing machine.. Last week I was buying one but there were so many types of sewing machine that I did not take a decision. And for a beginner like me It's better to start with a used-one machine to try and see.. Thank you for the attention. Bye bye. Claudia

    ReplyDelete
  97. Yes please! The t-shirt waistband sounds like a great idea, too! :)

    ReplyDelete
