DIY Mama Skirt

A Skirt for Mama

I made this skirt for myself. I had hopes of making a dress, similar to the last dress I made Penelope, and I envisioned it to come out kinda of like this dress, but with a wide elastic at top, that are all the rage right now. I bit off more than I could chew and ended up just doing a basic elastic casing waste. And like my very first dress I made for Penelope, this too, is going to be filed under “learning experiences.” It wasn’t exactly a disaster, and I even wore it out in public, once. I wore it with a white tank top and thick yellow belt. It would have been so cute, but it just didn’t fit right or the fabric didn’t lay right, I don’t know. Either way, I am not wearing it again. Its already been cut up, to become Recycle, Reuse, Refashion 3, so don’t even try and talk me out of it.
