McCalls 5038- Seeing Stars

All three of the M5038 skirts are done, but this is the only one I was able to get photos of so far:
This is a size 10, made straight out of the envelope. The fabric is 100% cotton quilting fabric from Hobby Lobby.

There's not much to say. This pattern is so easy it practically sews itself. That's why I chose it- it's quick and easy.

For this version, I used lavender satin ribbon to trim the ruffle edges and pick up the lavender stars in the print.

The waist is finished with 3/4" elastic in a casing. All inside seams are serged and the skirt is top stitched to secure the ruffle seam allowance.

The Princess is pleased- she wore this skirt to school today with a yellow tank top.

Stay tuned for photos of the other two skirts which turned out great, also.

And now, I'm off to relax in a recliner with the September issue of Burda Style, which arrived today. Later!

A really pretty skirt and the ribbon trim is a lovely touch. Lucky daughter!
I used to make most of my daughter's clothing - but she is now 15 and doesn't quite like my ideas as to what is cute and fashionable.
Apparently, black is the only colour to wear and style wise I also don't understand teen fashion according to her!

That is super cute! I love it with the pink top.
