The January Project Run & Play Challenge is from Alida Makes bubble dress tutorial. I decided to use Ashley’s tutorial on Make-it Love-it instead because it has more “bubble” in the hem, and I wanted to make skirts with elastic waistbands anyway.
I bought the tiger fabric because it was so cute, not knowing what I was going to do with it. It makes for a pretty cute bubble skirt.
The other fabric I knew was going to be used to make a bubble skirt.
For my one and a half year old girls I used these measurements:
Elastic- 19.5 inches
Lining- (1) 28″ X 7.75″
Main- (2) 28″ X 12.75″
This results in a 11 inch long skirt with an 18.5 inch elastic waist. For gathering I set the machine to the longest stitch length and a tension of 8, which is one below the highest tension. I did sew one at 9 but it was too gathered. If you do this method you won’t have to pull so much thread, risking thread breakage. The tension of 8 was perfect!
I have more of both fabrics left. Any pink tiger ideas?
