Lily was looking through my material box and found this yellow gingham material I had bought years ago. She asked me if I would make her a picnic dress from it. So I went online to search for some ideas that a beginner could sew up.
I stumbled across a fantastic tutorial about how to make these skirts on Make it Love it Blog. I really loved the look of them I tried my hand at one this afternoon. (It isn't a dress but she still loved it).
They are very quick and easy to make up, this one took me about two hours, but I hand stitched it, it would be much faster using a sewing machine. I think this would be fabulous in a nice floral patterned material. I intend to make lots more.
I used the leftover material to make a little headband to match.
Lily loved it, and spent the rest of the day twirling and spinning! And asking to go on a picnic ha-ha!!
Right now I am off to the haberdashery to get some material for Daisy's. She has requested farm material, but will probably change her mind when we get there.....
