So my kids have a sock hop to attend on Friday and I decided I was going to make a poodle skirt. How hard could that be??? Well turns out for a non-sewer, pretty difficult! I used a pattern but when I finished my daughters skirt was too small in the waist. I ripped out the waistband, and zipper and stuck some elastic in the waist. FINISHED! Sometimes you just need to know when your beat!
