Ruffled Skirts for Little Girls

September 11, 2010 Leave a comment Go to comments

I have finished these 4 skirts for two little girls in my life. I got this wonderful pattern from You Can Make This website. I just love this site for patterns and ideas of things to make.

This pattern is called Ooh La La Ruffled Skirt. It is a PDF download with multiple sizes. I looked up the amount of material to buy and thought I would make one child a skirt with the pink as the main color with black material as the ruffles. The other girl would get the blue main color with the brown material as the ruffles. I was going to make the ruffles with no hem (wider piece folded in half.) The thought of hemming that many ruffles made me lean to the “no hem” version. After I got home I realized that having that much fabric would be too heavy for a summer dress. Then I thought….hey what about making the ruffles out of tulle. So back to the fabric store and buying tulle for the ruffles. I am very pleased with how they turned out and think I will make future dresses in this fashion or with a very thin material for the ruffle….until I can convenience myself to buy a Serger for those hems with single layer ruffles. Well now off the to the post office next week to send them to some eagerly awaiting girls.
