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

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!

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

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!

How did you do the hem? It looks chenilled, too, but how? Thanks.

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

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

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!

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 :)].

What a great version of this skirt!

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 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!

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.

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

Very cute Amy!!! I love how the chenille-ing turned out!
Stephanie C. said... (1/25/07 7:16 PM) Reply
That turned out really cute! I've got my next one ready, too; a Valentines version.

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.

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.

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