Jersey Skirts

Can I say that I am in love with iCandy handmade.  I LOVE the jersey tutorials for kids and adults.  Today I am going to share three skirts I made using tutorials from their blog.

I will start with the two I made last year.  I made the ice cream social skirt for my niece, my daughter and myself.  It is such a simple skirt and looks great when it is finished.  I featured my niece's skirt here.  I never did take a picture of mine or my daughters, until this week.  Ours match, although we have not worn them at the same time, yet!
Mine

My Daughter
I used my serger on both of these skirts, matching the thread on my skirt and using a nice contrasting blue on my daughters.

One thing about a circle skirt is that it is very full, of course, and while I am happy with my skirt when I saw the Layer Cake Skirt on iCandy handmade last week, I knew I needed to make it.  I had the perfect fabric in my stash.  I made a single layer skirt for myself and love how it feels when it is on.

Back
I should have paid more attention when I matched the seam on the waistband, but It will be covered with a shirt when I wear it.  On this skirt I used a double needle to finish off the bottom.

I have more jersey in my stash just waiting to be made into another great project from iCandy handmade.
