I have been longing for a lilac skirt for some time now and after visiting my local JoAnn's I saw a cute polka dot and lilac fabric I thought I could make something myself.
I am planning on making a simple gathered skirt with a half elastic waist band. This is my second time making a half elastic waist band and the first time I didn't get the desired results.
This is my basic idea for what it should look like this sans the button up section.
III also bought this fabric a while back at Shabby Fabrics , when they had free shipping. I love their fabric stock. It is more classic and sweet classic inclined. There are so many beautiful items, I had a surge inspiration.
For the floral fabric, I'm planning on making something like this:
An empire waist jsk with pin-tucks on the bodice and near the hem and ruffle at the hem.
As for the striped fabric... I still haven't a clue what I can make. I am scouting the web for ideas.
These two project will be slow to progress, I am starting school soon. I guess these will keep me form stressing to much on just school.
