Miriam is one of those girly girls and for her last Advent Swap gift I wanted to make her a clothing item of sorts... a tutu/pettiskirt. Enter another first/winging it experience...

I used myself as a model as I think we are pretty similar in size. Three layers of tulle - each layer 3 x the width of my waist measurement. The tops were gathered by adjusting the stitch length to its longest setting and tension to almost tightest. Attach to waistband, and wind elastic through. I didn't sew the ends together or close the gap to allow Miriam the possibility of adjusting it as/if she needed to.
And little blue silk roses all over the outside layers. This was such a fun project and I loved that it turned out more or less as I had imagined it. Yay!
