Happy 4th of July!
Funny story... (at least us shwins laugh but my little brother not so much...)
When were were younger our little brother (maybe 9 at the time) asked when the 4th of July was... we all kind of paused and stared at him figuring he was joking... nope he had no idea he thought it was in March because it sounded like a holiday you March to... That bright young man grew up to be a Marine for the United States of America, pretty sure he would be laughed right out of there if they knew that story. Still, on days that we come to celebrate our freedoms in this great nation, and eat yummy food and play with fire :) I am thankful that he fights to protect that right. And since I am not doing much sewing these days... or anything really I thought I would at least bring home a guest post that just so happens to be sporting the red white and blue (only in winter layers :)
For the next piece I used some knit fabric so it was nice and stretchy. It will be the width of the waist and half of the length of the skirt.
You will also cut out a waist band piece that you will see later.
Then sew the waistband to the skirt. Sew right sides together.
There you have it, the nice and full bubble skirt is done.
Now my daughter has the perfect little skirt to wear for the holiday season, and with a different ribbon or tie around the waist it can be worn any other time as well.
Have a happy 4th of July!
