Poodle skirts for a fashion show!

Some time ago my daughters elementary school had a fashion show for a fundraiser and I'm just now getting around to showing you what we made.  It was a show where the kids could dress however they wanted...fancy gowns, tv character etc.  She and 3 of her classmates decided they would be girlies from the 50's.  Great...super...easy peasy!  A white shirt, poodle skirt and pony tail..done!  Well, of course they all wanted to match AND of course my darling daughter volunteered me to make them!  Sure..how hard can they be????

Let me start by saying....I have an amazing Janome sewing machine BUT I really don't know all that it can do.....AND...I can sew but I hate to follow directions let alone use a pattern!  Soooo.....this is what I did....I went to my mama's house for....guidance. {wink}



Yep, this is my mama!  She also has a Janome sewing machine....but actually knows how to use all the bells and whistles on it..unlike me!

Seriously....we did not use a pattern....probably should have but that would of taken a trip to JoAnn's....So Nah...let's just get on with it.  All 4 girls seem to be about the same size so 4 exactly the same it was!  We just guessed on how wide we go to make a nice laying skirt with a little movement!  I know....lazy!

I brought along my "now" new favorite tool to test...not knowing if it really is worth the money.

My new OLFA Rotarty Cutter definitely was worth the money.  This gadget is sharp as sharp can be!  Let's just say...I ruined some fabric that got caught under where I was cutting.  I know...duh...clear the work space!  It went right on thru.  So a 2 thumbs up for the Rotary Cutter by OLFA.  Get one folks....especially if you do a lot of straight cutting.  It's about $30 at Joann but HELLO...50% off coupon makes it about $15.  Dont forget..you can download an app for Joann and then you don't need to bring your paper coupons.

Look at that cutter gliding along so smoothly!  Well,  pretend you see it gliding!!

Yep, that there is my mama's hands.  She took over the sewing!  And who was I to argue with her!

Would ya look at the heart trim work!  There is no way it would of came out so nicely if I had done it!


There ya have it....4 colorful A-line skirts!

Well of course we had to make hair scrunchie with the left over fabric!  We added a poodle applique and there ya go!

Do they look happy or what!  They actually won and raised the most money for our church fundraiser!  Wahoo
Thanks for the help Mama...love ya!


Thanks for reading today!  Stay around a bit and browse some of my other projects!

Don’t put on necklace particularly a one particular which has a pendant hanging about the center a part of your breasts. The glowing pendant will only intensify your hugeness. In the event you genuinely need to put on some accent, it's a good notion to put on earrings for not just can it include much more lively component into your entire ensemble but in addition it could enable to elongate the higher component and cause you to appear in proportion.

Kelly, those skirts are adorable! I don't know how to sew at all, but my daughter gave me a sewing machine for Christmas. Now if I can figure out how to thread it . . . :)
