DD is really growing much taller. As part of our clothings purging exercise last week, we found this cotton on skirt she used to like 3 years ago.
The elastic band looks too good to be thrown away. I decided to try making a new skirt. I used this fuschia pink fabric which was labelled as lining. I found it too thick for lining and has kept it since.
Did the cheats method for ruffles. Initially I was pretty worried as the band is thick and my machine can’t exactly perform well with thick fabric. I did face problem as the fabric just dun seems to ‘move’. After I started to stretch the elastic band and pull the band from the back during sewing, all becomes better. I sewed two straight lines for reinforcement .
I have one more elastic band. Let me find a suitable fabric.
