Can Can Skirt

This is a better photo of the skirt I made Chelsea. I saw this post on the Made blog and instantly fell in love. Dana's posts and patterns convince me I can sew. I asked her if the pattern was truly for a beginner and she offered lots of encouragement as did a very knowledgeable co-worker so I decided to dive right in. It ended up taking me quite some time as I had to work on it here and there during naps and after work. When I finally finished it I was so proud of myself and I didn't even ask for help. Granted it is not as beautiful as the ones showcased on her blog, but I knew it wasn't going to look perfect. The great thing about this pattern is that you can size it for anyone, even an adult (with or without the chiffon ruffles). I might just have to get some Sis Boom or Anna Maria fabric and give it a try for myself.
