Yesterday while I had my machine out and I thought I'd try a slightly different version of the On The Border Skirt I made here. I took the basic measurements for the yoke and the main part of the skirt but added a larger top ruffle and a bottom ruffle to complete the skirt.
I picked up all of this fabric from Spotlight at an unbelievable price. It was all off the cheap rack at only $3per metre. I bought just over a metre of each so I have plenty left for future projects. I just LOVE Spotlight!
This skirt was supposed to be a super quick job to complete but as is usually the case I spent the majority of the time unpicking. I had to resew the gathering stitch on the bottom ruffle about 4 times because I kept pulling it out. I was getting a little frustrated because I was so close to finishing and things just kept going wrong.
In the end it only took about 2 hours to complete (including stopping every 10 minutes to feed the kids and change nappies etc...) and I probably didn't spend more than $3 for all the materials.
I just adore my labels.
Overall I am very happy with my afternoons work and I'm already thinking what my next project will be!
