Hello, I am excited to be here! I was so happy when Hani asked me to guest in her lovely space today! I’m Lindsay, from Southern Lovely.
Over at my place you will find all sorts of DIY’s, sewing, painting & lots of hot glue projects. It’s kind of a little of this & that. 🙂
I have a great time creating it all though.
 
Today I am going to share a fun project that feeds into my little obsession with skirts. 🙂
 
In hopes of warmer weather, I wanted to make a spring skirt. Since I have two little girls, I always make 2 of everything, and for some reason, my 2nd item always turns out better. I do try to rotate who is the ‘guinea pig’ with each project though. 🙂

My inspiration came from these petals found at the dollar store, of all places. I loved the pretty pink color, and thought I would give it a try on a skirt. This was very simple to make, but adds so much.
 
Supplies needed:
 
Material for skirt
 
(for my 5 year old I cut 15×22 inches & for my 3 year old, 14×20 inches)
Petals
Elastic band
Sewing Machine

Once you have made your skirt, start by pinning one row of petals at the bottom. I liked how my petals draped off the bottom of the skirt. It’s up to you how you want it to look.

Then sew a straight line across the petals.

Repeat with a 2nd row.

For the third row, I trimmed off the top of the petal, for a more tailored look. Pin the last row, then sew.

Yes, it’s really that easy. I love the dimension the petals.

Don’t you love how my little model is such a poser. This girl cracks me up. 🙂
  
The first skirt I made, I pinned all three rows, then sewed. It was kind of a pain to have to lift the row above, then sew. I like the ‘pin, then sew, then pin again’ method. 🙂 I have washed & dried these skirts & they still look great! They definitely need to be ironed after washing them though. Have fun with this, there could be so many variations of it, I actually have a few more in mind! Thanks for letting me share here today. Feel free to stop by my place & say hi anytime, I love meeting new friends.
