skirting the issue

I just finished the bed skirt for bambino #2's crib ... one more nursery prep item done! I am totally into a good zig-zag stripe right now, can you tell? I used the Vogue 7245 pattern (lots of great nursery items on that one!), and approximately 3 yards of fabric (more than called for since I wanted to match up the zig zag). My only quibble with this pattern is that if you followed the given dimensions, your crib skirt will end up too big. Instead, I lay out my "base" fabric on the actual mattress to ensure my dimensions are correct. Other than that, super easy and fast project!
