Little Lovely Lacy Petticoat Tutorial
April 27, 2016 in Projects
Hello!! Happy National Serger Month! What do I love most about National Serger Month? The DIY projects! You can stitch some really fun things with sergers and they can be so quick, cute, and professional looking! And so, I bring you the Little Lovely Lacy Petticoat tutorial made mostly with the serger.
Last spring, my 4-year-old (at the time) was in a wedding. The satin and organza flower girl dress that I had made her was begging for a netting or tulle petticoat to poof that skirt out! So, why not make one? Most little girls love poofy, full, spinnable dresses! So, I schemed up a super easy way to make one almost completely with your serger!
Want to make one too? Click here for the Lovely Lace Girl’s Petticoat tutorial! Happy Serging!
