Have you been enjoying summer? The sun? The carefree summer schedule? Yeah, me too. Except for record breaking heat…….which burns my poor little pale skin.
Have you been cranking out any summer projects? Well, here’s some inspiration in case you need some. Delia, from the adorable blog, Delia Creates, is co-hosting “Color Your Summer, 2012″. (And in case you’re wondering, that sweet little Delia may be the kindest and most sincere person you’ll ever meet. And her children?? Ack…..gorgeous!) All I can say is that there are so many fun and colorful ideas/projects over at “Color Your Summer”, that you may need to hurry over and scroll through. Like, right now!
All the different colors of “Color Your Summer” are completed by different bloggers. And my color is………….WHITE. I know, not super colorful. But white is such a summery color to me. And enhances all of those other colors of the rainbow. So white seemed perfect to me. And I know, white seems crazy to put on children……but I don’t mind it one bit. Because add a little bleach or oxy clean, and whites return right back to white. No problem.
So what sort of project did I make?? A sweet little summery WHITE Tiered Maxi Skirt.
Ahhhh, light and breezy.
The different rows of tiers can be shortened and lengthened, to make any size skirt. (And yes, I show you how to figure out the measurements, in case you want to make this skirt in your size too.)
If you make one in white like I did (which tends to be see-through)……… no worries. I’ll show you how to add a little lining on the inside, which I made short to keep the skirt cool.
And yeah, this is similar to my 3 Tiered Skirt tutorial here. Just longer.
Seeing Elli in this breezy white skirt…….makes me miss our trips to the beach while living in GA. I can just imagine this little lady running right along the ocean’s edge in this white breezy skirt. Awww, I miss those beaches. (And I miss our friends. How are you, friends? :) )
