Cassie is in a Christmas play at school. She even has a small speaking part. This is one proud mama. The play is set in a 50’s soda shop, so of course she “needs” a poodle skirt for her costume. Where do you find a poodle skirt in November? Pinterest to the rescue. I pinned this http://pinterest.com/pin/273664114828549612/. It was very helpful and included lots of pictures. I thought that the skirt would be a major undertaking and really time-consuming. I finished it in a morning. The worst part was sewing on all of the Rick-rack. I love the end result. The only change that I would make is to move the poodle over to the side a bit more. It’s slightly too far to center.
I had to tape together several pieces of paper in order to create the pattern. I did have one messed up pattern that turned out all wonky. Thankfully, I figured it out and got a much better pattern on the second try.
Pinned and cut out.
My little sock-hopper!
This was a fun project and I would definitely make the circle skirt again. Quick and easy and cute.
