Blue Roses







I finished this today. I originally bought the fabric on clearance from Wal-Mart; it was love at first sight! I bought all they had (only 3 yards:() and immediately started thinking of what sundress pattern to use. Alas, it went horribly wrong (too long of a story:). So, I took the tiered bottom of the dress and turned it into this skirt. I think it turned out ok. I'm not so sure about the pocket, though. I was going for one of those big poufy pockets that I've seen on so many skirts, but I don't think I achieved that! What do you think? Should the pocket go or stay????
I got lazy with the hem=| I just turned it over once and zig-zagged it. It's my favorite way to make a hem look unique without more effort:)

  1. NO THAT I'M A FASHION EXPERT OR ANYTHING BUT I'D SAY LOSE THE POCKET... UNLESS YOU PUT ANOTHER ONE ON THE OTHER SIDE

  15. This is so pretty! I'd love it as a bubble skirt, but I have no idea how to make that.. I just know of girls who've taken vintage long skirts or dresses and made them into bouncy little skirts!

    the pattern is gorgeous though, don't loose that ;)

    XOXO!
    hope to hear from you :-)
    love, amy !
