Ani-mal! Ani-mal!

I love my Cheetah print skirt! It's Animal!!


Mimi G. Does it again!! - I saw, I watched, I made!
I Luv, Luv, Luv!!!

Anywhooooo. . .  I had this fabric right, $1.50 per yard, 2.5yds at Wal-mart right. So, So, I'm not a cheetah print wear'n, tight dress, tight shirt w/big boobs wear'n so - it sat and sat and sat and sat until . . . Ta Taaaa- I heard the trumpets sound when I watched Mimi's skirt tutorial. (LOL!!)  A SKIRT - duh. 

This skirt took about 45 minutes to make because my fabric was flimzzay!  It's a cheap thin jersey knit but great for this project because gathered the fabric lays so niiiice. (eye bat).  After doing the Mimi shuffle (add this times three, divide by four, long by 2000 (pause) and cut and sew-1,2) I had a huge tube - I hate hemming but I had to make a casing.

I added a lettuce edge, with my serger, to the bottom to ease the hem pain and its pretty too. Great beginner project and fast for the intermediate and advanced folks!  I'm on the lamb for a fushia pink one-much nicer fabric. I guess that can wait unitl this weekend. I have been neglecting my family. (LOL!!)
