Dots and Flowers Skirt & Top

Project Description

What are you most proud of? That I'm getting proficient at executing designs on my own. Though I still need to reference patterns, I'm gaining confidence in putting my own spin on them - beyond just embellishments like ribbon or buttons! My construction is getting better and I'm able to get great results the first (okay, maybe second) attempt! What advice would you give someone starting this project? This is an easy project, be creative in the details to make it your own.

What you will need

  • Basic cotton quilting material

Love love love it! I see this fabric all the time at hobby lobby and can never seem to put it together. I love what you did!
Barbie Shipley answered:
Thank you! I actually bought a yard of each from Hobby Lobby a long time ago and didn't know what to do with it either!
