The crib skirts are FINALLY finished. I'm not gonna lie, they were a labor of love - if we are so lucky to have a 3rd, I doubt that there will be a custom crib skirt. Some of the time was dedicated to fixing mistakes and now that I know how to go about it, the next one might be easier. But, I can understand why the complete bedding sets on Etsy are priced at $300+!
I used a tutorial from Positively Splendid for inspiration, but I ended up kind of doing my own thing as I went along. Her measurements for the amount of fabric you would need are spot on though.

It's so nice to have it all done!
