I used minky fabric from Fabric Empire for both the bodice and the skirt.  I used a black dimple dot minky fabric (here) for the skirt and pink damask minky for the bodice.  Unfortunately I purchased the pink minky damask fabric years ago and no longer see it in their shop.  Originally I was going to use the pink minky damask fabric as a blanket.  However, as you can see, that never happened!

This was my first time ever working with Horsehair Braid.  This pattern calls for 1 inch Horsehair Braid, you can find some here.  Working with Horsehair Braid was much easier than expected.  When trying something for the first time, I get a little nervous, but this was so easy. I love the structure the Horsehair Braid gives to the hem of the skirt.  The directions in the pattern really help describe how to use the Horsehair Braid. I did make one small change…

The hardest thing about sewing for me is picking out which fabric to use.  I changed my several times.  When I bought my Horsehair braid, I had not yet decided on the black minky fabric.  I only had white Horsehair braid and since this pattern is a high low skirt, you could see the white Horsehair braid.  I should have purchased this black Horsehair braid instead.  To fix it, I just rolled the hem up one more time and stitched! Doing this made the pattern a little shorter than designed.  It is okay, she can just wear some fun leggings underneath!

Now hurry, go grab this pattern and the other 5 patterns for only $1 before the sale ends here!!

About Seams Sew Lo 120 Articles
Hi I'm Lo and I love to sew and I also love to play with my two children! I am a work at home Mom of two toddlers.  I never planned on staying home with the kids, however when I was 8 and 1/2 months pregnant with my first child, Little Dude, I was unexpectedly let go from my corporate job.  With a newborn and a tough job market, I decided to buy a Brother Sewing/Embroidery Machine and taught myself to sew. I would like to thank the many bloggers, youtube videos I have watched and PDF pattern designers for all their help. With a degree in International Business from Blaise-Pascal University in France I decided to open my own business, an Etsy shop.  I started making baby leg warmers and then added embroidered bodysuits.  I was so busy I couldn't keep up and had to seek out third party help. After my second child, Baby Girl, life became super busy.  There is something about little girls clothes that makes them so much fun to create.  I started venturing out to more articles of clothing.  It has been a fun adventure. I am learning as I go.  I sometimes skip steps or take short cuts, sometimes I take a long road to get where I need to go.  I don't think sewing needs to be perfect, I think it should be fun!!
