    …Makes a circle.  And in my case, a circle skirt.  I was so excited to try this new tutorial (it seems like I’m starting to get braver in my attempts to freestyle sew).  Now, I’m no good at math, numbers or any of that, so it took me three times of reading (two times fast, one time slow) until I felt like I could definitely do this.
    I cut the pattern.
    Picked my material. (I had a mind to add a few embellishments but decided I should probably master the skirt first.)
    And set to cutting and sewing…
    It all came together SO easily!  It honestly took me all of thirty-five minutes.  That is, until I realized I had made a grave mistake.  Somehow I had missed one small step…thus, turning my cute little skirt into nothing more than a Halloween cape for a small dog.
    BACK to square one.  Arg!  I had missed the small detail of folding my fabric over TWICE.  It’s all in the details, all in the details…
    So, I decided to make another one.  I couldn’t let my mistake dictate to my sense of accomplishment.
    Voila!  Much better, different fabric and def not a doggy cape.

    I love this pattern! I did the same one a few weeks ago and I love how it turned out. I didn't take any pictures during the process though. Sewing the elastic seemed to take forever, I just need more practice and I'm sure it will become easier.
    I also dyed some elastic a golden yellow – it turned out fab and I can't wait to add it to my next skirt!
