Milkmaid skirt

Milkmaid Skirt 1, originally uploaded by floreksa.

I actually made it into the sewing room last night. It has been WAY.TOO.HOT this summer to go in there. I bought a small AC unit for the room, but it does nothing to help. Last night the heat & humidity broke slightly, so I raced up there to try out a skirt pattern for Ally. Still hotter than Hades up there, but at least it was slightly cooler than the surface of the sun.

Followed the tutorial on Crafterhours.

Incredibly easy, but I have 1 major problem. The skirt fits her BEAUTIFULLY - once its on. The problem? It won't go over her hips. I have to put it on over her head.

I'm afraid to make the waist wider, as it will constantly slide down. I'm wondering if I'm going to be forced to put side zippers in? I dunno. I'm going to consult the experts at my new BFF site
