I Don't Have Anything to Wear!!
I'm sure I not the only one who has screamed this almost daily!
Well, thanks to Pinterest I was able to whip something up for a wedding this past Saturday. I am going to show you the links as well as the steps I took to complete this FABULOUS skirt.
Her Tutorial was so easy to follow that I made this skirt in about 2 1/2 hours!
The Big Oak Tree is the Blog and the instructions are super easy!
Hope you will try one too!
I first selected the fabric from Hobby Lobby below...
Since this was for a wedding I loved the classic look of the fabric and let's face it, you can't go wrong with Black and White.
Next, I cut everything out. Since it is all measurements it was quick instead of dealing with pattern pieces..
I first pressed the belt seams
I successfully did this without burning my fingers (If you know me you know how rare that is!)
Next, I stitched and serged seams together
I serged and stitched the hem...
OK, attaching the skirt to the waistband was super easy. I made my skirt a little fuller than hers because I felt it was more formal. Now she offers some tricks to ruffle the fabric, but I just tuck and pin and try to be as balanced all the way around as possible.
Now to attach the zipper without chewing the fabric...I cannot believe I was even successful at this but it turned out great (if I do say so myself)
Her steps were so easy to follow!!
Looks professional!! Can you tell I am amazed that I did that??
Now it's time to make the sash...
After stitching both pieces together, I folded, stitched and turned to complete.
Here it is!!!
Of course pictures do not give this fabric justice!
I wore with a black turtle neck tucked in and black boots!
Hope you attempt!
