Just a rockin'-and-rollin' good time!
I love retro clothing, and decided to use leftover fabric from a recently made Dorothy costume to bring back the fabulous '50s! (Sorry I didn't explain the circle skirt to you here, but it's really easy. Just go to the website I listed.)

  • Step 1

    Use the directions on this website to make your basic circle skirt.

    It's okay if your circle is uneven to start, because I found you can easily fix it.

  • Step 2

    To make the poodle, or whatever symbol you'd like on the skirt, trace a stencil of said symbol onto a colored fabric- preferably one that contrasts your skirt. Cut this out.

  • Step 3

    I know, I know- I took the easy way out: hot glue your patch onto the bottom of your skirt on either side. Make sure your patch is secure on all sides! (If I were a better sewer, I might have sewn it on...but I'm not.)

  • Step 4

    Draw a leash to your dog (if applicable) with a fabric marker. Have it attach to the dog's neck and extend to the waistband of your skirt.

  • Step 5

    Embellish the dog/whatever however you like! Rhinestone eyes, bows, hats, cotton for the poodle poofs. Whatever!

  • Step 6

    Put on some Elvis and get to rockin'!
