This was a UFO (unfinished object) for almost a year. It started out as a test of the circle pattern I drafted to make the first circle-skirted dress for my niece last year. Then, because it actually fit her first go, I decided to add the applique and finish it off for her. I got discouraged with it because the fabric started to pucker up around the applique – now I know why it is important to use a stabilizer! I’ve appliqued before (without using stabilizer), but on stiffer materials and had no trouble. Then I decided to finish it anyway so she could use it for a play-around-the-house skirt. And then I had trouble with the hem until I did a bit off research on hemming circle skirts. I also wasn’t happy with how I handsewed the black trim (dog’s leash) on. It kinda puckers up as well. Anyhow I’ve finally finished it – thankfully it still fits my niece (since the waist stretched a little with being cut as a circle — and hanging on a hanger for about 11 months! Lauren is happy with it. I think she may even wear it to her rock and roll dance classes.
not sure what the fabric is it’s very thin and has a sheen — bought at a discount fabric shop, felt, fleecy fabric, sequin trim, ribbon, tiny glass bead, zipper, fusible web
