The Christmas/Birthday Pettiskirt

A few months ago I found a cute, Christmas, long sleeved onesy for Lily to wear. I knew she had to have a Pettiskirt to go with it.
(This is not the onesy.)

I found some red w/ white polka dot tulle and some red silky material in the remnants at Joann's. Then I de-constructed her Halloween tutu, stealing all the white pieces.

Using this tutorial I began what I thought to be an easy, one night project. I mean, I know it seems like it would be a lot of work after reading through the tutorial but I was making this one on a much smaller scale. Only 1 skirt instead of 2 and not nearly as much fabric. So it should be much easier, right? 

But after 2 trips to Wal*mart and one to Hobby Lobby we now have a full and fluffy Pettiskirt that she will be wearing for both her Christmas and Birthday photos because I'm not making another one....Right away. Not until I invest in one of these ruffle feet for my sewing machine. 

Oh, and Lily took her first steps the other day! And she is getting her 7th tooth! Such a big girl :)
