My Little Gossip Girl

Gossip Girl is one of my guilty pleasures, and I watch it not really for the plot but for the clothes and accessories. When I saw the characters' uniform, if you can call it that, I promised to make one for Sharkteeth. I already made one for her when she was a year old---just a red plaid skirt with built-in shorts, but as with any other infant/toddler clothes, she outgrew it in a matter of months. I made another one a few months back, but I wasn't quite satisfied, so I made a new one. Ah, this skirt is one of the things that added to my already-shooting-through-the-roof stress level last week, but it was so worth the puyat! It was just pretty straightforward cutting and sewing for me. I merely cut a rectangular cloth (waist size + half), pleated one end thrice, lined the waist, hemmed the bottom, attached two strips of ribbon, added two bows, and sewed two buttons inside. I didn't bother cutting the fabric into pieces; I just placed two tucks round the hips to give it some shape. The rest of Sharkteeth's outfit is from the nation's prime capitalist, SM, where else?!

I'd love to hear from you, good or bad. And remember, if you can dish it, you better be able to take it!
