Have me moved passed Halloween week?

I'm still stuck there...

I've been anxious to test out the latest Dana MADE circle skirt tutorial.  It seemed so simple, and I needed to know if it really was...


It mostly was easy.  It has the two inch wide elastic waist band.  You just do a stretch and pull method as you attach the skirt to the elastic.  I think having a serger makes this project more enjoyable.  


The fabric is from a Riley Blake line that Liz and I bought when she visited me in Korea six months ago!  The shirts I found when I pulled out my storage tote that was labled "fall decoration".  I think I bought them at a 75% Target after Halloween sale.  So probably I paid $.50 for them.  They aren't perfect, but they are festive. And it's true what Dana says about these skirts, I made both of them in an hour.  Making the pattern took a little extra time, but now I have a cute circle pattern piece to use again. 

The ladies loved them, and I think we'll get a lot of spooktacular wear out of them!  Happy Halloween.

I love the circle skirts!! Jane and Ruby look so darling, and I think the orange shirts go just fine. You've definitely styled them well with capri leggings, converse, and matching hair ribbons. Too cute!!

Glad you extended Halloween week!
