The last outfit of the week was also “client-inspired.” Every year I have made Hannie a tulle skirt (here and here are past years) and this year she asked for another “ballerina skirt.”
So, impractical as it is, I went with it. (Although I will add that both past years skirts have washed up perfectly and were worn a lot!) I don’t dry the tulle skirts, I just hang them up and they are ready to go.
The tulle is actually bridal chiffon tulle, which I love because it is extremely soft (much softer than regular tulle). I cut 9 yards of tulle to knee-length and then gathered it to some 2.5 inch elastic. I did line the tulle skirt with a layer of white broadcloth (the cheap kind) and it turned out the perfect poofiness. I really do have a girlie that likes to be fancy.
The shirt I found at Old Navy where they had lots of pastel colors (and they were on sale—although I can’t find them on the website now—I bought them about a month ago.)
Perfect for Spring Formal Wear….which is this week at PR&P….you need to go check out all the goodness there (and VOTE)!
P.S. Any sewing plans this weekend?
