The Bustle Skirt

So spring-y.

I got the tutorial here. It was a fairly simple project, albeit more time-consuming than I had originally anticipated. I want to make one for me, but that is a lot of cutting. My hand gets tired easily. And there is no one around during the day who will listen to my whining about a cramped hand.

She wore it to church yesterday. I got asked a few times, Did you make her skirt? Hmm...the more I thought about it, the more I thought...it must just look really homemade. But that is ok. I love it. And I will have her wear it again.

If you make it, cut out more circles than you think you will need. Pack them in tightly. I used an old T-shirt for my base skirt. I think I would use a lighter-weight material next time, but you can't foresee all of the problems the first time around. I just love it when a project comes together. For the most part.

Happy, oh happy Monday. Off to clean the house.

That is super gorgeous...don't think that it looks handmade...it is just one-of-a-kind and that is why people asked! ;)
