Victorian Christmas Tree Skirt

Image of Victorian Christmas Tree Skirt Designed By Julie A. Bolduc

This crocheted victorian Christmas Tree Skirt is made with 10 panels that are crocheted together to form a complete circle. Then a collar is made at the top to make the neck of the skirt smaller. It is fun and easy to make but it is a big project that is time consuming.
