I was so excited when I found the fabric on clearance
a couple of months ago;
I figured within an hour or two of arriving home
from Hobby Lobby
I'd have two adorable little outfits all sewn up.
Should I do skirts?
I was already writing a post in my head.
I knew Lana'd be jealous
so I bought enough to make a skirt for her, too.
I considered one for moi,
but I'd feel like a cupcake in so many ruffles
and I'm pretty sure my booty couldn't really carry off the look.
when I laid out the fabric
with all its glorious rufflage
I couldn't quite figure out how to make a skirt that would look decent;
where there were seams, the ruffles would be sewn down - flat.
So you'd have ruffle, ruffle, ruffle. seam.
With a narrower ruffle fabric, I think that'd be okay,
but these ruffles are 4 inches!
I even cut off a few ruffles and made a little doll skirt as a test
and just as I suspected, it looked less-than-adorable.
So my fabric sat.
When I'd think about it, I'd sigh.
Darn it, I'd wasted $7.50!
And then Monday,
I didn't manage to get to it Monday,
but the first chance I got yesterday
I whipped out a skirt for my grown girl.
It's not nearly as elegant as Katy's version
but still it's cute
and quite fun
and most importantly, Lana loves it.
