Sewing Day ~ Three Tiered Skirt

I made a three -tiered skirt for Lydia today. I followed the directions here at CHK for Home-styled Tiered Skirts, that Wardee wrote. I only altered the instructions for the elastic waistband a little. I stretched the elastic out and cut it at the waist measurement plus one inch.

I have to tell you that these instructions are the very best I have ever found on the internet. They are basically the same as all the other instructions, but Wardee has a way of explaining them that far surpasses all the other available instructions.

Here is a picture of the Lydia wearing the skirt after it was finished.  It took about 1 1/2 hours to finish it from cutting to final press.

The next three pictures are the fabric in various stages of finish.

First are the three pieces of fabric I cut and sewed each together, pressing the seams.

Next is a picture of me gathering and pinning the third tier to the second tier.

And finally, here is a picture of the finished skirt.

Lydia loves her new skirt!  You should try to make some for you or your daughters or other girls in your life.
