Pettiskirt

I found the tutorial HERE on how to make this fluffy pettiskirt. She explained really well and make it super easy to follow. It took me about 6 hours to make and a whole lot of sewing and ruffling but I got it done and LOVING it. I really like the color but next time, I will need to use a different type of chiffon (a non-fray chiffon) because I did not finish off the edge ( too much work)and now they are little peaces of strings hanging on the bottom. . . Still way cute though.
 Not bad for a first try!!! Right?!
 Look at all that fluff!
 I am totally making her a second one for her Birthday :)
 I even find a very cute little model to show it off :)
 Sooo, what do you think?

PS. no glue for my glue gun. . . Life as we know has come to an end!!!! have to wait until tomorrow to get more. 
Will be linking to these parties

Came out super cute. You have to order nylon chiffon to keep it from fraying. I can send you the link to my supplier if you want...you can even buy it in rolls like tulle so you just have to cut your lengths!
