Has she gone???...
So I chopped the legs off where I wanted the skirt to sort of end. They were originally cargo trousers so I wanted to keep the pockets.
Then I turned it inside out and pinned along the crotch seams.
Trimmed and overlocked it, cutting away the excess.
Overlocked on one side of each strip.
Then sewed each strip end to end so I had a long narrow circle, and overlocked each seam.
Then the side that wasn't overlocked, I pleated and pinned it into place, spacing it out evenly!
I then sewed it into place and overlocked it. then I hemmed the bottom.
It still looks a little plain though....it needs something else.
I foind this lovely flower trim in my stash, so I sewed that along the edge above the bottom frill!
I still need to wash and press it, I'm saving that till just before I have to send out though, because IntrepidYarn is allergic to cats and I have two! I think it's really cute and I love it! I just hope that she does!
