Reindeer Skirt

January 15, 2016

Ahh… 2016… Time seems to be running these days.. especially with a baby around πŸ™‚ Ms J will be 18 months in less than 4 weeks and i am still wondering when she grew up so fast..
No new year resolutions for me as just can’t stick to them… This is what i wish to do in this year
Sew more…
Blog regularly..
Stay on top of laundry πŸ™‚

I have two projects from 2015 to be shared and documented…
While this skirt is one (made at the end of November)…. the other one is what i am super excited about… lack of photos means, its down my blogging queue.

Holidayish Skirt

SEW-Reindeer Skirt-Ms H

We spent the Christmas long weekend (2 weeks of holidays cut to 4 days by the school)visiting my parents. Ms H wore this skirt couple of times there and my mom was telling all the neighbours that i made it (felt proud… patted myself invisibly couple of times ;-)). I forgot to pack it while returning to Chennai so some old pictures have to do.

Though the fabric was set aside for a dress for Ms J, Ms H wanted a skirt out of it… i may have enough for a dress for her, but now i really want to make a floaty blouse for Ms J. Dress or Blouse????

Any way here is the technical info πŸ™‚
Pattern: Paris Skirt Tutorial
Fabric: Stretch poplin from cotton street (Has a slight stretch crosswise), I am sure it has lycra and would make lovely blouses and shirts.
Size: 5Y
I cut the fabric with every intention of adding the two pleats but in the end i decided not to, so its a tad longer on her.
Completely lined the skirt. Lining fabric is a bit heavier than the skirt.
Lined and interfaced the front yoke.
Added a bit of lace near the hem.
The back has two rows of 0.5″ elastic as i have ran out of 1″.

      Thank you for the sweet compliments Preeti. She does like it a lot. These days she wants to have a say in what I sew for her. The lace is actually her idea.
