It was a couple of months ago that I first heard of Pettiskirts via an Australian online forum. http://www.princessratbag.com/ had a special on, which I missed out on and I have been wanting to buy one for Rose ever since. I knew they were costly to buy but I never even considered the possibility of making one until I saw a link to http://www.marthastewart.com/. She had the pettiskirt guru, Kaiya Eve of http://www.kaiyaeve.com/ on her show and I found a link to an online video tutorial. I had some pink and white polka dot material, bought and used as a tablecloth at Rose's 4th birthday party and it had only cost me $1 per metre. I knew a pettiskirt would take a LOT of fabric so I decided to use that to keep the costs down in case it was a failure!
Here are some of the pictures that inspired me to give it a go!
