Today it's a layered trim skirt.
- 1.5 yards of 1 - 1.5 inch wide trim
- 18 inches by 6 inches of fabric
- 10.5 inches of 3/8 inch wide elastic
- take the 18 inch by 6 inch piece of fabric, at the top and bottom of the skirt, fold over and press .5 inch and again .5 inch to the wrong side and topstitch
- take the 1.5 yards of trim and cut it into 3 pieces of 18 inches
- place the first piece of trim along the hem and topstitch
- place the 2nd piece of trim above the first and topstitch
- place the third piece of trim above the second and topstitch
- place a safety pin at the end of the elastic and thread it through the casing
- with right sides together sew the skirt seam with .5 inch seam allowance
- iron seam open
- turn skirt right side out
Different types of trims come with different price tags. To give you an idea the total cost of the trim for each skirt shown here, it was: $4.50 for the purple faux suede fringe and the pink box pleat, $.38 for the yellow eyelet, and $1.00 for the white scallop.
The t-shirts in these photos were made from newborn onesies, tutorial found here.
