It is officially spring! We welcomed spring in February here in Texas, and I have been wanting to create something with springy-feeling for my daughter Momo. So I got this springy flower print fabric, and all I could think about was making another Ruched Skirt. The full tutorial for the skirt can be found at: Blooms And Bugs.
I ordered this fabric online. When I got it, I was surprised how very light this fabric was. So I added 2 layers of tulle raffles to the inner layer of the skirt to add volume. I cut the flower fabric wider than the inner layer, thinking that may add more volume too, but that was so unnecessary and I think the skirt would have actually looked better if I had kept the same width for the both layers. Well, I tried and learned.
This fabric was also very easy to fray. I could not keep the shape of the cut fabric as I worked on it. But the design of the gathered skirt with ruched hem perfectly masks my imperfect skirt :)
Little Momo likes to get goofy when wearing this skirt. I think she likes it because it is very light.
Pretending like a little ballerina...
I love Spring. Bluebonnets are blooming now, and those lovely blue flowers just make me happy.
Linking up to those fun parties.
