Great job! What a cute skirt. I'm sure your daughter will love twirling in it.

OMGosh, that is sooooooo cute Amy! I am so making one just like that for DD - thanks for the inspiration as I missed the post on the Ottobre group.

Your skirt is precious! I bought the pattern for my g-daughters and this was just the inspiration I needed to get me started on them.

That turned out really cute! I've got my next one ready, too; a Valentines version.

Very cute Amy!!! I love how the chenille-ing turned out!

I really like your technique on the edges. Cute and great twirl factor. I bet she can't wait to show it off.

I really like your version in just one fabric with with this fabulous "chenilled" backwards seam. Like MelissaB, I want to copy it exactly. I'm dying here--Can't wait until home renovations are complete and I can start sewing. This pattern is number 1 on my list.

Now yours is my favorite one yet! I could have had this pattern at PR weekend, but didn't think I liked it. I love yours!

Thanks for all your lovely comments, ladies! I really feel all the praise should go to Silke--it was hers that caught my attention. But I'm not sure she posts on this site, so thought I'd share mine with you in case any might love it like I did!

Now that is just adorable...I want one! ;) Cute typo, hehe...most people have to *wash* their cut seams to get it to chenille [sorry, I couldn't resist :)].

Amy. Love the skirt. I just purchased this pattern myself and can't wait to make my first Redondo. DD is just turning 2, don't know if she'll fully appreciate the twirl factor--but I will!

Very cute skirt! I like the chenille edges a lot.

Darling! My DD would have loved this.

Ody said...
I am definitely going to make one of these for my 6 yo so she can twirl.

How did you do the hem? It looks chenilled, too, but how? Thanks.
1/29/07 4:30 PM
jnamcd said...
Stephanie: I just stitched around the edge about 1/2" and about 5/8" (2 stitching lines for safety!!) --then I snipped into the hem every 1/2" or so and washed away--it chenilled those edges, too. I debated just doing a rolled hem on the skirt, and levaing the chenilleing for the seamlines, but decided to go ahead and do it all! HTH's!

Amy, Very cute! Please tell me where I can see your inspiration.

dreamdesigner: I (along with others on this site!) belong to a yahoo group (ottobre-english) --that talks just about ottobre patterns. A member there posted her picture of this skirt, she had made. Later, it was taken off the board (probably because it wasn't an ottobre pattern) --but I was so glad I got a glimse of it before it was taken off --it was a great inspiration for me!

Very cute. I can never get my chenille-ing to turn out just right. Great job!
