Today we are excited to have one of the coolest people we know sharing one of her awesome tutorials with us—-Jen from iCandy!Hi! Jen here, of iCandy handmade.
Autie and I are so excited to be a part of this
Skirting the Issue series.
Over at iCandy, we have posted quite a few skirt tutorials;
they are one of our favorite things to make!
Here are a few:
Today we came up with a new (to us) idea!
As we were trying to think about what kind of skirt to make,
I thought of using a pillowcase.
I have made dresses and nightgowns out of them, why not a skirt??
The options are endless- vintage flowers, lace, plain with added embellishments, even characters!
You could even use regular fabric, if you don’t have a cute pillowcase.
I used a lace-edged one I had in my stash, and Emily and I are very happy with the way it turned out.
It is an elastic/drawstring waist combo, with eyelets.
Want to make one??
Materials: 1 pillowcase or fabric equivalent 1/2 yd 1″ elastic about 1-1/2 to 2 yards 1″ ribbon. 2 large eyelets and either kit or tool to set them in OR make buttonholes
Stitch on marked lines.
Thanks again for having us, ladies!!
