Polka Dot Skirt

It was a rainy day and I couldn't think of something nice to do. To shoo away my boredom, I once again brought out the portable sewing machine that my MIL handed down to me. Too bad It is a very basic kind of machine, no zig-zag and other creative stitches, the reason why I was not able to sew this skirt perfectly. Thus, the stitches on the garter are uneven and not neat at all. Hayyy.. I am now wishing for a Singer 2273 Esteem II!

Materials Used:
polka dot fabric
black tulle
black garter
black gina cloth
black thread

Anyway, this was one of the easiest skirt that I have sewn. I just layered all three fabrics and then attached them to the garter. The stitches look crazy when examined closely, but overall, this project of mine is comparable to Hollister skirt which I saw in a department store months ago.


  1. The uneven(?) stitches don't show anyway. It looks great!

  2. wow great job! you really can sew! congrats sis!

  3. You sew!!! I bought a sewing machine ang I'm just starting to really learn how to sew.

  4. I love it! I love chiffon skirts! <3
    Sana may sewing machine din ako. If I'll take up classes today, pattern making and basic sewing kukunin ko.


Thanks for dropping by. Have a great day!
