Description

A special Easter Outfit for a special Niece. The fuller the skirt, the better to twirl in. The skirt was made with gathered rows of coordinating Heather Bailey Freshcut fabric. This skirt is very easy to make and will really grow with the child. Waist band is a casing with elastic for a perfect fit. No pattern necessary, just keep adding more fabric and more gathers until you get the desired length. I like to press each row and top stich so the seams lay flat and look more professional. I also use a serger. I learned a technique, early on in my sewing, to use the blind hem foot and move my needle position to far left. Another technique I love is to add a band at the bottom, which is much easier and quicker than doing a hem. Simply fold a strip of fabric in half (wrong sides together) and sew both raw edges to the bottom of the skirt. Press, top stich and your finished.

The shirt was machine embroidered using two designs I had on file and editing them together to create something new. I use the Embird digitizing program.
