I’ve got a massive backlog of projects that I worked on over the last year (or two . . .) that I never posted, so I’ll be squeezing those in between more recent stuff. This one here is a set of glitter dot running skirts that I made for the Universal Studios Minion 5K. Courtney and I naturally went as Minions.
I used this skirt tutorial by Beauty Still Remains. It was pretty easy and the skirts took about an hour or two to do. The part that took the longest was gathering the fabric to attach to the yoke. I hate gathering by hand, but I wasn’t sure what the gathering amount would be with my gathering foot. Next time I will probably just use the gathering foot. I’ve got some glitter dot leftover from a 70’s outfit I made and I’m pretty sure it’s just enough for a skirt. It’ll be great to use the leftover scraps for something useful!
The blue glitter dot was less than $4 a yard from fabricdirect.com. I happen to order from there because they had some other fabric I wanted, but you can pretty much get it anywhere. I know JoAnn’s typically carries it as does CaliFabrics which I like ordering from since they’re local.
The front and back are pretty much the same so you can’t go wrong no matter how you put it on!
