The Candy Corn Skirt

A month ago or so, I was walking through Joann's -as I all too often do - and I came across this: Candy Corn Pom Pom Fringe...instantly I knew I had to make something with it. I left the fringe at the store but kept thinking about it, so I knew that I "needed" to go back and get it! At some point, the idea of a Candy Corn skirt came to me.  So, I went back to Joann's and stocked up on the pom pom fringe along with orange fabric (that I think looks an awful lot like pumpkins) and some yellow gingham.   I have made more than a couple "even" tiered skirts so I wanted to do something a little different this time -- enter the angled tiers.  I love them! Originally, I thought I'd put another layer of fringe along the bottom but after getting the other two tiers in there, I thought it might be overkill to have even more fringe, so I left it off. I like it, but what do you think? More pom poms? Just enough?

I actually made up my own pattern this time -- with my assistant, and we are quite pleased with the results.

A couple more pictures of the happy model ... now when I get back into town, I am making #2 her very own skirt & we are heading back to the pumpkin patch. :-)
