Ruby went to her friend Alysse's birthday party this past weekend and thus another Can-Can skirt was made. I'm able to sew one up quite quickly and easily now. (Apparently I've made 8 over the past year and a half.) Color pattern/choice is probably the most time consuming part these days. For example, I tossed around a few ideas in my head until 24 hours before the party and then I started sewing.
I finished the white base in a timely fashion, mid afternoon. Ruffles... not so much. I wanted to do rainbow but had less color variety than I thought. So I was giddy when I finally stitched down this final combination of ruffles. Partially because it was 11:30 pm and also because I had to unpick a whole ruffle layer to make the above work. I had only so much of each blue to work with. Eek! I love the end result. It reminds me of an ocean wave and as it happened the party was "Hawaiian Luau" themed.
How cool of a coincidence was that!
With Ruby hinting about "needing" another Can-Can skirt and my stash running low, I do believe there's a nylon chiffon order to be placed in my near future!
