The skirt - part 2 (Posted 20th May 2009)

The skirt is nearly done, it took forever to cut out the diamonds, thank goodness for my Mum she cut out most of them while I was at work, I love her so much <3

I used wonder-web to put the diamond pattern on the skirt, it took a while as the skirt is ruffled.

Now all I need to add is the darker blue material at the bottom and the last ribbon at the top :D

The skirt - part 1 (Posted 17th May 2009)

Boy this is taking some time!
I've made the pattern of the skirt with a paper template.
It will probably take a while to cut out the pattern but I've got a week to finish it, I hope I do so ^^;

The top (Posted 17th May 2009)

I bought 2 tops from Uni Qlo that were the same size but 2 different colours (white &amp;amp; pink)
With the white top I tucked under &amp;amp; sewed the neckline (back &amp;amp; front) and sleeve line.
For the flowers I got some flowers that you use for making cards. I poked the flowers into the left hand side of the white shirt (front &amp;amp; back) and taped it down on the inside. I then sewed the white shirt to the pink shirt so it stays in place.
And finally added the purple ribbon to the front of the shirt, it&amp;#039;s a tad bit short but it will do.
