Ruffles, ruffles & ruffles!
A girl can never have too many ruffles!
On a recent shopping trip at my local fabric store, I spotted some ruffled fabric that made me go week at the knees!
What to make…..what to make…..a simply stylish ruffled skirt for my youngest daughter!
I can sew anything for Miss Georgia & she is so appreciative.
She has even told me on many occasions that she loves the clothes I make her because they are made with love!
She does have a way with words & loves to tell people how much she loves them.
Having the material already ruffled, makes a ruffled skirt so simple.
I love that this ruffled fabric has a LOT of stretch in it.
Now this skirt is so incredibly easy to make.
It is just 2 rectangles, sewn up the sides, fold over the top to make a hem & thread some elastic then finish it off with a tag so the front & back are easy to find!
I did not even need to hem this skit as I cut just under the sewing line of the bottom ruffle.
The rectangles are cut using this formula…
Sew up the 2 sides of the skirt.
Fold over the top, 1 inch, & sew around leaving a gap at the back to insert the elastic.
Thread the elastic so that it sits snug on the waist.
Back sew on the elastic so it is secure at the ends.
Sew closed the casing & you are finished!!
I love this skirt so much that I made my own!
Just have to make sure that we do not wear them on the same day!
