The Skirt


I used this tutorial to make Hannah's skirt, but I didn't follow it exactly :) It turned out pretty well, but with a few mistakes (of course!!). I learned a few things that I'll do differently for the next one. 1) I'll follow my Mom's directions for gathering the skirt instead of the tutorials (basting stitches at 1/4" and 1/2" w/ a seam allowance of 5/8") so the basting stitches don't show. 2) Add a few more inches on the top tier. I only added 3" from Hannah's waist measurement, and 5" would have been better. When I make mine, I'll have to measure my hips to see just how large I need it to be.

How cute! You should teach us how to do this at playgroup! Your girls look beautiful in their wedding dresses. Elijah is very handsome. I'm sure they'll have lots of fun in the wedding.
