The Can-Can Skirt

I bought the Can-Can skirt pattern from Made a few years ago. I never made it. Finally, I decided it was time to try sewing with chiffon and braved it. I'm not a huge fan of sewing clothing. It's not my creative love. It don't do it often, and it drives me a bit nuts. My girls love how their skirts look, but I won't be making more anytime soon....

Child #1 refused to pose and changed out of her skirt as soon as we arrived home from church. Child #3, on the other hand, will do just about anything to get her photo taken and happily obliged me with a few poses.

The chiffon is soft and fluffy and ruffly--everything a little girl could want. It makes for a pretty good twirling skirt as well!


  1. It looks great, but yes, chiffon is a bit of a 'challenge' (or 'opportunity' as my boss likes to call it) Don't blame you for not pursuing any future opportunities in this direction ;o)

  2. I love it!! I live just the idea!! I'm sure I could make a grown up version, right? At what age do we need to say too old for a ruffle skirt??
    Glad you had a good Christmas.

  3. Very cute! Personally I love to sew clothes, but HATE sewing chiffon. Looks like you did a great job, it can be tough to work with.

  4. How cute! Looks like one little girl was very happy.
