I agree they are beautiful. I am not sure how my DD would react to such a full skirt though. She would either love it or really hate it

Ok...I planned on making one of these for my daughter's b-day coming up...but now I'm going to have to come up with a backup plan. I found out the directions on Martha Stewart are for an 18 month old. My dd will be 4, so hers would require a lot more fabric. I have never shirred before, so I tried with tulle. I was pretty easy, but my darn top thread kept breaking. I used the method w/ the elastic thread on the bobbin...is this right? And everyone is saying the nylon chiffon must be purchased online. Bummer. There must be an easier and cheaper way!!!

I made this one yesterday. Took 14 yards so its not super duper full. but its full enough as you can see for her
Theres a place called Magicmakers or something on line that sells nylon chiffon for $2.25 a yard.
I just used cotton thread on top and bobbin.
To gather the fabric I turned my tension ALL the way up and then lengthened my stitch length all the way out,. it gathered the fabric on its own

Nice job!

I wandered into the Disney Store yesterday and they have pink skirts similar to the pettiskirts for $24. They are not as nice of course, but still great fun!
