My First Pettiskirt.

OK first I'll Admit that I have boys so no one in this house is going to wear this. It will go to the craft shows with me until it is sold (unless I get offeres here)

But this is my first attempt at a pettiskirt and I am SUPER proud. It came out perfect.




here it is all flat out.

I have ordered a ruffler foot for my sewing machine so the next one should go much faster.

Re: My First Pettiskirt.

I gues the main mistake I made was that I was aiming for infant sized and this could fit a 5 year old. But that's OK like I said I have boys so I will sell it.

When you made yours did you try to work from the bottom up or top down?

The Nylon Chiffon is fun to work with I am thinking about making myself a just below the knee length skirt (minus the Fluff) for my cousins wedding.

I've wanted to make one of these for years but just didn't have the patience. Your first one looks great!
