It's here! Our 2nd annual Birthday Bash, where my Blogging BFF Gwen (of Gwenny Penny fame) and I share projects just for us as well as some of our favorite things and finish up with a Giveaway just for you! You won't want to miss a single day of the fun. :)
When it came time to decide what project to do for the party this year, it obviously had to be something for me. :) I have been itching to make this skirt for a while, and I've had the fabric on hand for a couple of months, but just never seemed to find the time to make it for myself. Last week I made the time, and I'm so glad I did. This skirt is super comfortable and I think it will be a staple in my wardrobe for the next couple months (who am I kidding, I think I'll be wearing this skirt forever). :) I followed this tutorial on the blog Elle Apparel and it was really straight forward. I wasn't able to use the elastic thread since I couldn't figure out how to get my machine to like it, so I just used a stretch stitch on my machine and it worked great. Next time I will make the waist smaller because it tends to stretch and by the end of the day it felt like it was falling off. The other thing I would change is to purchase a bit more fabric (I used 2 yards as it was) to make it a bit fuller in the bottom. But I am thrilled with the skirt and so glad I made it. :)
Thanks so much for stopping by our party today, and we hope to see you again tomorrow!
