So it's time for family pictures again and I wanted something super cute for my daughter to wear. I've been looking for a while and still didn't find anything. I decided I needed to make the skirt I wanted for her and it only took less than an hour and a half. Here's how.
I used a twin size bedsheet in tan. Trim the seamed edges off. I used 3 strips lengthwise. Cut a little at the end and tear the rest of the way. So quick and easy. Each strip was about 4 inches wide.
It's not one continuous strip but you could sew it that way if you wanted.
Here's the flower loosely placed to make sure I had enough ruffle for the space.
After the flower is sewn down, cut a casing for the waistband.
Cut a piece of elastic to fit and pin the four corners.
Pin the elastic in place and serge or zig-zag.
Fold over the casing and stitch down. And Done!
What a fabulous, inexpensive, skirt!
wow !!! amazing . i really want to sew !!ReplyDelete
It's darling! No hems, right? Just the frayed edge of the torn strips? And did you add a second ruffle under the first all the way around? What a cute skirt!ReplyDelete

So cute, that I had to make one of my own. I used a pillowcase, because Im making it for a 2 year old. It turned out DARLING! Thank you for the tutorial!!!ReplyDelete
I love this skirt, the layers of ruffles and flower-beautiful! I want to try to make it for my daughter. Would it be possible to add to the post a front view of the skirt taken straight-on or could you email that to me? A straight on picture would help me visualize the proportions of the ruffles and flower to the entire skirt. A huge thanks!ReplyDelete
Is there a tutorial for adult sizes? I'm a 10 or 12 women's. Also, what is the best material for this, a cotton or a blend sheet? Or a knit? Thanks!ReplyDelete
