Ellie's Tiered Skirt

After thinking about it and talking about it for so long, I finally made Ellie a skirt! When I bought the fabric, I just estimated on the yardage, and really, I should have bought more because I
wanted the skirt to be a bit longer.

Ellen loves bright colors, and she is so pleased with her new skirt. It went together quite easily, and I plan on making her another one this week. Next time I want to add more fullness to each tier. I like how this skirt came out, but don't you think that it should have more gathers in the tiers?

    good pictures! I can't wait to see the next one.

    Last night we set up the table and I am now ready to sew! I'm so excited. It's starting to look like a real sewing room.

    We had so much fun yesterday. Thanks..

  2. I like the skirt. She obviously does as well.

  3. I think it has just the right amount of gathers. It looks nice and I love the fabrics.

  4. Hi Ruth! Thanks for stopping by. So you just purchased MFW the Kindergarten curriculum? Very fun - we got in the mail and are very excited! So one married daughter and some young ones - a full house! How do you ever have time to sew?
