Blushing Buttercream Pettiskirt GIVEAWAY!!!! CLOSED.

February 23, 2009

opera houseThe giveaway is for the pink skirt only. It is made from six yards of nylon chiffon. So fluffy and soft, like butter cream icing on a cupcake. Molly loved to gather the fluff in her hands and run around the room laughing madly. Lily enjoyed twirling. When your little ones are twirling in a nylon chiffon pettiskirt your camera can do no wrong. Seriously. Just point and shoot. The skirt does like 90% of the work.

Last year I fell in love with these skirts. I had wanted to buy one for Lily and one for Molly to wear for their first and fourth birthday party. However, in the end, the price gave me pause. If any of you have seen these before, they are chiffon pettiskirts made famous by the Kaiya Eve line. If you buy them from her or her any of her competitors, they retail for $80-$100 a piece. Although, recently I've seen some on etsy for only $60. Still, sadly out of my price range. Especially seeing as I would be buying dos.

So imagine my surprise when I found a Martha Stewart interview with Kaiya Eve desinger Kandi Lightner who demonstrated how exactly to recreate her gorgeous skirts.


opera house
In case you don't win or don't have enough money to buy one online, here are the online instructions to try one yourself.

Here is the video of Kandi and Martha. Although I have to warn you, it's tedious. And the
instructions don't tell you everything you need to know.




opera houseI'll let you in on some of the little secrets I had to learn the hard way. First, you CAN'T use polyester chiffon. It frays like you'd never believe. AND you can't find nylon chiffon anywhere but online! Here is where I bought mine. Good news, it's only $2.25 a yard, bad news shipping is like $10. UPDATED CHIFFON INFO AT BOTTOM OF POST.

Second you should build it from the bottom up rather than the top down. That way you just sew in a straight line rather than a gathered circle.

Third, you have to know how to 'shirr'. I didn't, and Martha and Kandi didn't let me in on it either. Apparently you need elastic thread which you wind on the bobbin by hand so that it is not stretched tight. Set your stitch to the longest setting and then sew down the middle. This should gather the fabric.

I used that method with the first skirt I attempted- the polyester chiffon mess. With my second attempt I thought I'd outwit Martha and use a 'Gathering Foot'. When I first used it I thought it was the bees knees! That is until I stitched for longer than five minutes.


opera houseMaybe I wasn't using it correctly but it kept unscrewing all the screws on the needle and gathered the fabric underneath as well as the fabric on top. In the end I spent all day on something I eventually had to rip apart to start over again. Lesson learned....never undermine Martha. She always knows best.

Lastly, you need to purchase about five yards of fabric to make one skirt. The directions tell you how many pieces and how long and wide but not how much to buy. If you are making a contrasting fluff you should buy equal parts of each color- 2.5 and 2.5.

When I was trying to come up with a name for the skirt I considered something to do with jellyfish. Since the bottom fluff reminded me of the ruffles on their tentacles. In the end, I didn't think taking pictures at an aquarium would yield positive results. The strange thing was that when I asked Lily what she thought the skirts reminded her of she answered....jellyfish. I swear I hadn't said a word about them to her.

We've been meaning to get down to the Baltimore aquarium. I think we just have fish on the brain.


opera houseNEW. Fellow blogger Allison, let me in on another site selling nylon chiffon for less money. Here.

I'll be posting frequently this week. So please come back soon to see all Grosgrain's new goodies.

Last day for posts is Friday 3/06/09. Winner will be announced Sunday!




opera houseAs usual, if you would like a chance to win this pettiskirt just link back to this post. If you have any questions see the "questions and answers" link to the right. If you use blogger just use the "create a link" link at the bottom of this post. If you don't use blogger, that's fine too. Just create a link on your page as you normally would and I will see it using Technorati.

AdronsCatherine said... Best Blogger Tips

Wow! You really make the most breathtakingly beautiful creations!

I bought instructions to make on for Ellie for Christmas, and had nothing but problems sewing it. First, my ruffler attachment will not work with the chiffon on my good sewing machine, and it doesn't work at all on the cheap one. So I started gathering by hand, and was sooooooooo close to having it done when we had a fire in my sewing room. Didn't burn much, but that pretty pink chiffon is now a horrid shade of grey, and I'm guessing that this was God's way of telling me to just scrape together the pennies and *buy* one lol! Ellie was just drooling over the pics in this post, too ;o)

I watched the Martha video with my 4 year old and when it finished she said, "Well, that didnt' look too hard. Ready to get to work, mom!"
Yeah. As if I'm going to drop everything to make a skirt RIGHT this minute!
So I told her I'd try to win it first and then worse comes to worst, I could try my hand at it. She seems happy with this answer. Now I just have to win because I don't know if I'm up to 5 yards of chiffon! LOL!
Thanks for the chance to win!

I just posted on my "pick me" blog. I would love to have one or these for my daughters as I cannot justify the cost.

Gorgeous - unbelievably gorgeous! I may have to dust off the sewing machine and see if I can create one of these for my niece. Thanks for the give away chance.

I have been wanting one of these for my 3-1/2 year old for the longest time, but just like you, was not willing to fork over all that cash.

I am so happy to see that you are offering it as a giveaway and that you've even posted the directions. I can't wait, either way (although it would be much less labor-intensive if I won).

You're incredible for all that you do. Thank you so much!

Oh, I forgot to post the link in my previous comment:

I have a few blogs, but this one is not listed in my profile.

Oh, how my daughter would LOVE this! Thanks for such generous giveaways!

I so don't have a child that would wear one (I wish but my girls aren't that way.) However, I gotta take the moment to say, THAT is beautiful!!! Makes me with I could shrink myself for a day, so I could wear one ;)

You think they would make fun of a thirty something year old woman in that skirt?

This is so adorable. Would be a great gift for my granddaughter, who is totally into dress-ups. Totally adorable. I linked this to my blog at: shef-fam.blogspot.com.
