I originally posted this on my old blog in 2008. I’m happy to say I’m still using this tree skirt.
I couldn’t find my usual Christmas tree skirt this year, and it was one I’ve been wanting to replace anyway (so I didn’t look too hard), so I decided to make a new one.Lil Girl had this dress which she wore for Christmas a couple years ago, and I hated to get rid of it because it’s such a pretty dress. The thing I really liked about it was the way the tulle underskirt peeked out from under the overskirt.
Note: I initially left the seam at the back intact, but after a couple of years of having to do some magic tricks to get the skirt on because I didn’t think of it when I was first setting up the tree, I opened the seam & hemmed the edges. Now it just slides around the base like any other tree skirt.
