*the inside of the skirt and my new tags!
A long time ago (about a year or so?) I saw this skirt on etsy. I wanted to buy it for my Emily's BFF, Emilee (for her birthday). But i didn't for one reason or another. Anyway, I stumbled upon the pattern to make it myself and almost (just almost) peed my pants in excitement!! Emily's new friend Cheyenne just had her birthday and she's really girly so I thought this would be perfect!
The really cool thing about this is it's made with no-fray nylon chiffon. It feels like a nylon slip. Really soft but snags on my roughed up cuticles! The chiffon is from this shop and it's sooo cheap! It's 54" wide and $1.69 a yard! I bought 3 different pinks, 1 yard each. I used almost all of it. I made each ruffle a double layer so it took a little more than normal. I also made the size 8 because I had trouble understanding the ratio thing. I don't do math. I.don't.do.math. So I went with the size used as an example in the instructions because it already had the math done for it! As it turns out, it is the perfect size for Cheyenne and even though Ava and Emily are smaller than Cheyenne (just shorter) it looks good on them too. I bought 3 different blues to make Emily one too. She requested blue but when I made this one she said she doesn't remember telling me she wanted blue and how about we do pink!
I had fun taking and editing these photos of Ava. She was really good at taking direction! I know it's odd I have my watermark on each photo so it looks overboard but I hadn't intended on grouping them in twos when I did the watermark. Just needed to explain myself..
I used Florabella Actions: morning glory with some sweet haze on top. The pictures are kind of my ode to this photographer. She has really really inspired me.
