My Creative Space - Little Dot Skirt

So the plan was to share my finished crochet yoke dress.. but my mind has been elsewhere, dreaming up a skirt that I just couldn't resist to start.... and as usual I had ligitimate reasons 

The overlocker had black on it, I needed white...
so really it made sense to whip this one out first, right? 
Sounded good enough reasoning to me.

So here is the dotty twirly skirt....
I would have liked some modelled shots, but my model won't have a bar of it today.... when it was time to change her nappy she ran screaming away from me to hide behind the curtain

It's basically the same as this skirt I made here, except the skirt has two layers to attach the stretch lace to, and the waist is sewn in two places so I could insert the faux bow

I tried my hand at doing a rolled hem, but no luck....
I think I need more practice......
I've just cut it off for now and I will leave it as is, until I'm more confident with rolled hems.... one day.

And I just love the navy polkadots,
 especially teamed up with something red

Such a sweet sweet skirt.

It sure is worth practicing the rolled hem... because once your confident you'll never look back.

This skirt is gorgeous!
I am also scared of rolled hems. Even after learning how to do them in an over-locker class last year - still scared! One day, right.....
