Opening Night of The Nutcracker Ballet.
You are Scheduled to Sell Nutcrackers at the Ballet Guild Table.
But Oh Dear, You Have Nothing Sparkly and Enchanting to Wear.
And It’s 4 Hours to Showtime.
Don’t Despair. I’ve Got You Covered.
Literally. In Gold and Tulle.
The Fabric is Gold Thread on Black Tulle. Sheer with a Scallop Hem. 2 Yards. From Joann’s.
Follow Along on the DIY to Create Your Short, Kicky Fancy Skirt.
Super Sonic Fast and Easy. 30 Minutes Start to Finish.
Keep the Fabric Folded in Half. 2 Yards Makes a Full Skirt.
Sew the Cut Ends. French Seams Up the Dressmaker Look.
This is the Back Seam of the Skirt. You’ve created a Glittery Tulle Tube.
Doubling the Fabric Makes the Skirt Less Sheer.
The Scallop Edge is the Hem.
Take a Quick Green Tea Break. You’ve Got this.
Fold Over the Top…Just a Bit…Just Enough to thread a Thin Elastic for the Waistband.
Done. Yes. Really.
Hang to Get All the Wrinkles Out.
Add a Velvet Top. Back Velvet Bow Closure.
Yes. The Skirt is Sheer. Black Leggings Keep It All Together. Cozy without Undies Showing.
Whoops. Gotta Run. No Time for a Finished How-Do -I-Look Photo…
Love the Ballerinas.
You Will Shine as Brightly as the Sugar Plum Fairy. For About the Same Price.
Enjoy the Magic. 🙂
