I’ve been wanting to try this tutorial for a Patchwork Twirly Skirt for a long time. It just seemed like a lot of work on a conventional machine. Well, this Christmas, my mom got me my very first Serger! I am very excited. I decided it was time to finally make this skirt.
Day 1: Cut 4″ squares of fabric
Day 2: Finish cutting squares of fabric & start sewing together.
Day 3: Finish sewing tiers together.
Day 4 (today): Add elastic to the waistband.
Don’t feel daunted… I have to work my craft time in between taking care of the family and house.
Here is the result of my hard work.
I’m not going to lie, I kind of want one for myself! But I don’t know that I’m ready to make another yet.
Total number of squares cut: 232 – Thank goodness for a rotary cutter!
All work was done on my serger (including gathering) except for the elastic casing. I wasn’t sure how to do that on the serger, so I brought out my standard sewing machine.
Hubby says she looks like a little hippie … and I don’t mind that one bit!
