Official Tutorial Skirt Pictures

It's almost done, sweeties! I just want this to be really good, you know? It's also taking a little longer because I have about zero experience editing videos, and dang, it's hard to do it well. (Which, it should be noted, I'm not doing. Doing it well, that is.) But I finally got a chance to run out with my dad to get good pictures of the skirt (which are needed for the video, as well!) & I thought I would share them with you!

I just want to note, stilettos + snow do not work together.

Oh, this thing is so poofy. It's also big on me, so it sits much lower on my hips than skirts normally would. I had a lot of fun adding details, which you'll see better in the video, and it's funny that I made this in a couple days, but it took me a month to finish my other skirt.



  1. That is so cool, Addie! I love it!

    My fairy skirt only took a couple days too... I think it's the way that it's constructed which takes less time than the way of the gibbous skirts.

    I love that hat on you! Did you make it or buy it somewhere?

    Also, on another note, computers are frustrating! The dumb thing wouldn't let me comment. :P

  2. :) Thank you!

    Oh I know, I am so impressed that you did yours in one night! I agree, we must be doing it differently than Gibbous. I get the feeling that she does a lot of hand work, certainly more that I'd care to do!

    My mom made the hat! (& thank you!) I can have her dig up the pattern link if you're interested.

  3. Sure, if it's not too much trouble!

    I really don't like hand work... I'm too impatient for it.

  4. Okay, we found it! Here's the link: http://www.chicknits.com/catalog/cassidyscap.html

    It's actually a pattern you have to buy. I know Ravelry has tons of free alternatives... one I'm going to try making is this: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/star-crossed-slouchy-beret

    ...if I can handle the pattern, haha. Good luck, if you decide to make one! Post pictures on your blog for sure!

  5. Thanks Addie! It'll probably be a while before I make it because my knitting skills aren't very advanced... But I hope to try it when I get up the courage!


  6. That skirt is gorgeous!!! I love how you pair it with the stripe stocking. Really nice.


I love hearing from people! Feel free to leave thoughts, questions, etc. Thanks, dolls!
