A Fairy Skirt for Amelia


Finally I have something new to post. I have finished a 'fairy skirt' for my niece Amelia. This is being modelled by James in the picture, pretty isn't he!
Amelia collected it today and looked gorgeous in it. I will have to get my sister to send me a photo.

Very cute...what did you use around the waist?

Hi girls, it wasn't too hard. I cut double sided leaf shapes and placed them over a piece of elastic cut to the correct size. I just stretched the elastic as I sewed the tulle on (and used a stretch stitch). Then I covered the sewing with another piece of satin-like elastic and again stretched that as I sewed.

It was a very amaturish job - believe me!

That looks great Belinda! All I could look at was the scratch on poor James' face, hope it is healing ok!
