My granddaughter, sweet Ms. C, fell in love with the
pettiskirt featured in the Chasing Fireflies catalog.
They wanted $98 plus shipping!
I told my daughter "I can make it for much less".
After ruffling & sewing & ruffling some more for DAYS on end,
I COMPLETELY understand why that thing cost so much!
It is extremely labor intensive.
Not hard to do, just long hours of repetitive sewing,
while continually manipulating the gathered chiffon
as it twists & turns on itself.
The little white blouse will get tucked in,
which is why I didn't put more rows of ruffles
around the bottom.
What this Nana Rett won't do for that Angel, huh?
Thanks for stopping by & letting me share my projects
with you. I have a patriotic quilt to show you for the 4th
so be sure to stop back then.
I'm linking to
The Tablescaper for her
p.s. Would you believe my daughter has already requested that
I make Ms. C a BLACK one for Halloween??
I think I've created a monster!
