It didn’t take much attempted shopping to realize I’d be making something to wear to my brother’s wedding. I’m sure most people consider themselves to have some kind of shopping curse–too tall, too short, too wide, too busty, not enough…whatever! I fall into the “too short” category. So dresses often just hang on my the wrong way. Well, dresses that were in my trying-to-spend-only-about-$100-to-get-us-all-outfitted-for-the-wedding budget anyway.
So it was back to scouring the internet for skirt pictures. I’d already made skirts for my girls remember, but I didn’t want to just make a grown-up size one for me. I needed something different. And this was the winner.
I headed back to Joann’s to buy more of the gray material I’d used for the other skirts and some accent colors of light pink and dark gray. I didn’t take any pictures while I was making mine–I was in too much of a rush to actually get it finished before we left town! The main thing that I did differently was using regular fabric instead of knit. I had to hem each layer of ruffles so they didn’t fray.
