remember when i got all that fabric from AM? well i finally got up the nerve to cut into it (i like to buy, look at and pet fabric...but not cut it...i'm weird...but you already knew that)...here's the first of several pieces of AM and i have planned for emma:
a twirly skirt from one yard wonders
(the fabric is alexander henry bauhaus that AM found in the fantabulous fabric market over there in seoul)
it was really simple and easy to make...the hardest part is making the bias tape (and you can skip that part and buy pre-made if you want)...BUT while making the bias tape i suddenly remembered that i had recently ordered an entire SET of bias tape makers off of ebay...duh! so i went into the
deep abyss, junk hole, craft room and dug them up...all i can say is: wow!...if you've never used a bias tape maker you don't know what you are missing...for reals, i could make bias tape all day now...i loved making the bias tape
i also made the little piping that sandwiches between the gathered skirt and the yoke...but you could buy some of that pre-made too...
now i just have to ship it over the seas and cross my fingers that it fits...i have some ideas of how to modify this pattern a wee bit and have more ruffles...word on the street is that emma likes ruffles...
be sure to go visit the other sew and tell links listed on amy's blog (congrats to amy and family on their new arrival!)
have a great weekend!
