If you take a good look at the computer-rendered sketch at left, it’s dated October 12, 2009. I have to be honest and admit I have many of these computer-rendered designs that never got beyond the sketch stage.
But this one stayed in mind…I printed out a few copies and left them around my studio. I posted the sketch on my Facebook profile and showed it to a few people, who responded favorably. Finally, free time on my birthday led this sketch to fabric!
In deference to my cousin Kyleigh who says a petticoat is always called for, I’m considering adding a lace ruffle as pictured and leaving the skirt hem loose on the front of the quilt. Thinking I will need to make a facing for the skirt if I do that because everyone is going to want to lift the skirt.
