How To: Peasant Skirt to Bubble Skirt

pink

Happy Tuesday! Remember that pink fabric from last week's My Creative Space? Well, this is the tutorial. I am sorry I haven't an action shot of the finished piece but it does look as good on as it does on the hanger. :)

Once you have trimmed off the bulkyish gathering, turn your skirt inside out and marvel at your awesomeness.
Voila.
I love this skirt. It is so light and feminine. As soon as I finish my ballet flat refashions I will brave the cooler spring air and take some action photos for you.

Due to the simplicity of the entire process (I made this skirt in under an hour. (Pulling out the shabby tinsel on the other hand...lol) I tried to keep the pictures and text to the point, but if you have any questions please feel free to ask them!

Until next time, happy sewing!

That's a really great idea--I might have to try it with one of the many peasant style skirts I have hanging in my closet. I can't believe you were patient enough to pull out all that silver thread...

You've done it again! Great job and instructions. Now I can't wait to see what you have in mind for that tinsel!

Nice job. I tried one a few months ago and it was a semi-disaster. I'll have to try this again with your instructions.

Melissa..this is darling! I love it! I will have to show it to Rebekah. She is a refashion queen who won't let me take pictures of her in anything. I'm going to have to start putting her creations on the body fitting form that we made her just to show off her stuff. If she makes this, I'll send you a pix. :o)
