Christmas Skirt

IMG_1903

Merry Christmas!!  ( a few days late)  I hope you all had a wonderful holiday with your families.  We had a great one and I’ve spent a good few days doing absolutely nothing but enjoying being home.   Before Christmas I noticed I was down to 1 skirt that fit, so I made myself another one with a nice stretchy waistband I can wear while I grow wider and wider and wider and wider and wider.   Yay.

The fabric was at Joann’s on sale, the whole skirt cost me under 10 bucks.  The ruffle at the bottom was a last minute addition when I accidentally chopped it off too short.  ( long skirt + no nylons = happy me)  I made the ruffle by sewing with a large stitch length and holding the spool of thread on my machine to increase the tension.  I wore this to church today and I’m happy to say I loved it, and it was still loose enough it didn’t cut off circulation to my legs for 3 hours while sitting in church like last week.  Oh the joys of pregnancy.

Pin It!

Very cute! I wish I was that handy making clothing! made pj's for christmas and yuck! Although this skirt, I just might be able to make it! LOL I might have to try it....although I don't know if can...I have a belly but no baby inside! Oh and I will ignore the fact that you look like a perfect pregnant woman, I hate perfect pregnant woman....although since I like your blog so much, I will over look that! Also out of curiousity,what is your calling? I got a new one, Relief Society pianoist. :D
