I got one of my Japanese pattern books out yesterday and made 2 little skirts.
This was the first one I made.
I was surprised that it did not fit snuggly around my daughter waist.
Everything I have made from my Japanese pattern books have fitted perfectly up to now.
This spotted fabric was out at $2p/m.
I bought 3 metres of this fabric and 3 metres of another fabric, also selling for $2p/m.
So all up I purchased 6 metres of fabric, using a $10 voucher I only paid $2.
I decided to make a slight change in the next skirt I made.
I added an elastic back and this made ALL the difference for a perfect fit.
I even went back and altered the first skirt, also giving it an elastic back.
This spotted fabric was put on the cheap rack but was supposed to be full price at $14p/m.
I ended up paying $6p/m.
I added this woollen lace trim and blue ric rac.
I'm not sure if it would have been better left plain.
What do you think?
|I just love this pearl button ♥|
I made another little hair bow, this time attaching it to a lacky.
Such a cute little pattern. I'll be sure to make a few more of these :-)
