I think they turned out cute….I just need to make a mental note that if you want them longer that you have to cut them WAYYYYYY longer. I cut these about 3 inches longer than some current ones, but the knit tends to shrink up. Next time I will cut them 6-8 inches longer. I followed No Big Dill’s tutorial except for the elastic part. I didn’t have any wide elastic so I just pulled and zig zagged some 1/4 inch elastic into the top ruffle on the back of the fabric. Does that make sense?
I found the fabric on ebay for only $4.99 a yard. I got gray, purple, black and white (although the white was flawed so I had to return it—-it’s probably good because it was pretty see-through….). I just searched for knit ruffle fabric and several options came up.
I am also working on Hannie’s Christmas Dress. I got the sleeves put in today, and I will hem it during nap time tomorrow….and then there is a lot of handstitching that needs to happen. I am kind of making it up as I go, but I have taken some pictures to show you soon.
