i finished gracie’s ruffle skirt today. after ripping out half of it and starting over, i’m somewhat satisfied with it. i got the idea for the skirt here, at the sew mama sew blog. there was a great tutorial that lead me through it, step by step. then i saw this picture, and decided to make the skirt a little differently. i wanted to add more fabrics, and also an extra white ruffle at the bottom. well, here’s the result:
i’m not sure if i’ll keep the white ruffle. i like the contrast, but it seems too small, like too tight around her legs? not sure how to fix that? and i still need to put elastic in the waistband. i plan on procrastinating long enough on that so gracie forgets about the skirt, then i can give it to her for christmas.
update: oops! i forgot to attach links earlier. they should work now!
