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.

dana said... Best Blogger Tips

thank you for such great insider info on the making the skirt. Oddly enough, I watched that same Martha months ago and saved the episode on our tivo. I came across it again two nights ago and thought, "I should make that." Now I feel more confident with the tips you shared. And yes, I wasn't sure what they meant by "shirring". Your description is perfect.

Monique said... Best Blogger Tips

Thanks so much for your kind giveaways!

S.L.P said... Best Blogger Tips

I'm amazed that you made one of these. I have wanted one for my little girl, but agree that the price is steep. Thanks for the tutorial, though I think my chances would be better at winning than attempting one myself.

jennie said... Best Blogger Tips

I have really concidered buying two of these for my girls. I just could never justify it. But we always oogle them when flipping through Chasing Fireflies. But even with you helpful instructions, I could never manage to pull one together! Well done, Its gorgous.
You are linked:)

Sara said... Best Blogger Tips

I am so in love with the pettiskirts!!!! Thank you so much for sharing directions.... kind of intimidating to a pretty new sewer! lol But if I don't win, I might get ballsy and give it a try! I am with you, buying for 2 girls is very expensive with all of the incredible stuff that is out there!!!! ** Your girls are just way too cute!!!**

**fingers crossed that I win!!**

Kinzie Sue said... Best Blogger Tips

Oh, I've wanted one for my daughter forever. They are so fun and beautiful, but as you said they cost an arm and a leg. Thanks for this chance to win and as always, beautiful work!

If I win this darling skirt I would give it to my older sister. She is having the first baby girl in our family of 5 girls. So far the sisters have only had boys and finally we get a niece to dress up in butter cream pink fluff. YIPPIE!

birdbabies said... Best Blogger Tips

how amazing...you are the answer to my long and tedious search of trying to find a pettiskirt that i could afford! my little girl loves dancing and spinning. I have been dying to get her a pettiskirt to twirl in, but like you, have only come across those that are out of my budget:) Thank you for the sewing tips as well. If I'm not the lucky winner than I'll have to try my hand (or beg someone else) at making it.

Jamie said... Best Blogger Tips

I'm so loving these. Wonder if you'd give a couple more tips... I checked out Martha's site and video, and the skirt they made seemed pretty small. Would you share the measurements you used for each tier's piece? Also, did you end up shirring the pieces after all? I have elastic thread for that but have never done it, but also have a ruffling foot... Have you ever considered making a tutorial? I bet you'd be fabulous! Thanks for the tips and inspiration. I'm off to find some nylon chiffon!
