Sewing project

Hi, there was this sewing project I wanted to share with you last week but never got to it. It's no fun to share it now, because most of you have seen it already in person, but for those who didn't, here is what I made:


I wanted a grey skirt for a while, but couldn't find one that I like.


I didn't have a pattern for it so I had to do it the way I thought was right, adjusting along the way.


These ruffles were cut out of circles (just realized I don't know much sewing terminology) and gathered just a little. Hamming them was a little challenging, but since they are not in a straight line you can't see little flaws on them.

Originally I wanted to make more flair at the bottom part, but was afraid that I will run out of fabric. Glad I didn't, I had just enough to complete the skirt. Loved this fabric. It was soft, easy to work with and it is almost wrinkle free. The best part of it was that the total cost for the skirt was just a little over $15 if you add elastic.

Thanks for stopping buy and I'll see you soon!

  1. This is so pretty!!! I've been having a skirt design lingering in my head for a while that I would love to sew but good luck finding time...:( Is that skirt for you or someone else? It looks like that it's someone else wearing it.

  2. I love that skirt Anya! You looked gourgeus in it on Sunday! Even other people noticed that you look really good in grey. Great job!
    I did notice ruffles on your table last week, never thought this coming. With lack of sleep and constant feeding, you still managed to make a skirt. WOW!

  4. He-he... First of all - Thank you! Girls, all of you are right! Anka, Alena is wearing it for the picture. Obviously it was big on her, so she had to pull on one side, opposite of camera. ha!

    Tanya, the way my sweet baby is today, I'm surprised myself that I got it done :)

    Irochka, that's exactly where my idea came from! Ira shared a picture on her phone and I've only sen it for a few seconds. Sorry, but it got stuck in my head and I decided to give it a try. I didn't see all the details, just the basic idea. :)

  10. Gmm, exercise with babies and as a reward for all the hard work a "cold frappe". Sounds like not a bad idea for you two :)
    Well if that gets scheduled next week, then I can offer babysitting any day, so you can relax while enjoying a cold drink. My doctor is off all next week so I don't have work late days, love that!!

  14. Tanya, that sounds good. I would like to see how you handle both of them :)

    Ira, you can still make one, especially if it's going to be a different color :)

  15. Anya I sure can (with the help of my girls of course)! :) I might need that frappe too afterwards :)

    Ira just make ruffles on the other side, so it wouldn't look the same.
    I guess I will make one in red, since all other colors are taken :)

  17. And how did you guess so quickly?! Well that's going to be my workout, so I hope I will deserve one too :)
    Actually it will be my pleasure, they are so cute at this age. I have more trouble with babies that crying nonstop, I just feel helpless then.

    Not sure if all the colors on the color wheel will work for this kind of skirt, but that is an idea though. LETS GO WITH BRIGHT YELLOW! WOW! Or would that be a little too much of the sunshine? :))
