Seersucker Skirt

So, I know I haven't posted in awhile, but as many of you probably understand, life sometimes gets in the way of the things we want and love to do. Fortunately for me, I've still been able to sew and craft, but I just haven't had much time to blog about it.

So my "returning post" is to show off this super cute, seersucker ruffle skirt.

I must admit that I was never the biggest fan of seersucker. But when I came across this wonderful tutorial over at Dana's blog Made, I suddenly fell in love with the fabric. So I ran over to Joann's and picked out this cute purple with white polka dots.

The main thing about Dana's skirt that I loved as much as the seersucker was that she finished the hem simply by serging the edge. Lucky for me, my wonderful aunt (thank you!!) has allowed me to borrow her serger to try out before buying one of my own. This was my first project using the Serger. My response? DEAR SWEET SERGER, WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN MY ENTIRE LIFE?

Anyway, I love how the skirt turned out, and will probably be whipping up a few more, because they're perfect for skipping in.

And I was also informed that she could wear them to ballet class, because they're perfect for spinning and dancing in as well.
