Spring to Finish: 1 down, 9 to go!

I tend to find that I am either in my room sewing or I am on the computer blogging/reading blogs, etc.  I find it very difficult to do both!  Since there has been radio silence here lately, you can guarantee that I have been doing LOTS of sewing!

We are over halfway through the Spring to Finish challenge right now, and I have finished more than 1 project, but I like to give each quilt or craft it’s own day in the sun.

And well, this skirt is only ever going to have one day in the sun, so I have to take advantage of it.

Number 5 on my list was ” 5. Finish ruffle skirt for Elena (she made me buy fat quarters from Joann’s and fabric is poor quality and must not mix with my stash!)”

I did it!  In no small part with lots of help from my NEW SERGER!  WOOHOO!

This skirt was made with tons of ruffles and great finished edges.  I did it without any pattern.  And Elena wore the skirt for these pictures.  But then immediately took it off.  She has declared the skirt – the one that she BEGGED for – too big and too heavy.

It now sits in her dresser.

But look!  It was cute and flirty, even though it was made with poor-quality Joann’s fabrics.  (I know some of their fabric can be good quality.  This stack was definitely not good.)  They were cute fabrics though!  And now they are just cute fabrics…sitting in her dresser.  Taking up lots of room.  Because, let’s be honest here, the skirt is big.  Oops!

  2. it may be big, but it sure is cute!

  3. […] 5. Finish ruffle skirt for Elena (she made me buy fat quarters from Joann’s and fabric is poor quality and must not mix with my stash!)  DONE.  In fact, the first project that I finished.  Blogged here. […]
