Oh my, it's been a long time since I've updated this thing!!!  Sorry!

So this year for Easter I committed crazy.  That's correct...C.R.A.Z.Y.  I decided that I was going to make Hannah and Ava's(my niece) Easter dresses.  But they weren't going to be just any dress.  Oh no.  That just wouldn't do.  I decided to make pettiskirts.  Who can resist those big balls of soft ruffles?!  There were two blogs that got me through, Little bits of Bliss and Make It and Love It. Without these two blogs, I would have thrown my sewing machine and fabric out of the window.  I used Little bits of Bliss to help me figure out how much fabric to use and I used Make It and Love It for practically everything else.  The diagrams on Little bits of Bliss saved my life.  I know that sounds extreme, but unless you have ever made one of these suckers, you can't understand.  Also a huge help was borrowing my sis-in-law's ruffler foot.  I'm pretty sure that little contraption is worth it's weight in gold.  I worked on the skirts for about 2 full days and then pulled an all-nighter the Friday before Easter.  I was exhausted!  But every minute of lost sleep became worth it when I saw this...

And this....

And of course this...

It made it all worth it!!!
