yippie! i finally bought a pair of knee length boots. then i saw this tutorial. and i knew i just had to make a skirt/petticoat like that for myself! so i did.
i made the skirt from an old blouse which has a big tear on one of the sleeves (and beyond repair). i love the material because it was really soft and stretchy. so i cut the top off, and made an elastic casing for the waist. it was not long enough, so i lengthen it with some muslin. as for the ruffles, i hem the edges of each one, and then i just sew them on to the skirt. easy-peasy lemon-squeezy (i learnt this phrase from reading ‘charlie and lola’ to lil j! and i love it!
Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this,” says the LORD Almighty, “and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that you will not have room enough for it. Malachi 3:10
