What will a 20"x58" piece of fabric get you? A new skirt for your little girl in about 30 minutes. Okay. It took me an hour but that is because I tried to get the lint out of my sewing machine and couldn't figure out how to put the darn thing back together. All fixed now and ready to make a few more of these. No pattern necessary. Just sew the salvage edge with right sides together (this will be a back seam). Make a casing that will hold a 2" piece of elastic, leaving an opening to feed elastic. Feed elastic through. Sew opening closed. And voila. A new bright, happy polka-dot skirt. Libby thought she wanted an unfinished edge on the bottom but changed her mind and now wants it to be hemmed. So, a 1" hem it will get.
I'll be back tomorrow to show you my new favorite way to give a gift card.
