I had some leftover fabric after making a Ruffle Summer Dress. This is the fabric I used for the test-run dress. It did not work out well as the ruffle dress, because I made the dress too big and also the fabric design did not go well with the dress design. But I still like this flower print, and I know Momo loves pink. I had just enough to make a skirt, so added some leftover tulle and I made a really girl-y layered skirt!
Claire Skirt -Blooms and Bugs. This easy-to-follow, clear tutorial shows how to make a layered skirt with pretty details suing bias tape, ric-rac and multiple pull-ups. I especially like the way the skirt is constructed, with the elastic is inserted between the two layers.
This is actually the third one I have made using this tutorial. The last one I made is here. Just like the last one I made, I sewed 2 rows of tulle ruffles to the inner layer.
I actually was not going to add the pull-up details this time and thinking to make a simple layered skirt. But the outer layer was not flowing nicely, so I decided to add just one pull-up. I used the pull-up technique from this tutorial: Cinched Up Skirt-Craftness is not Optional I added this after the skirt construction was completed. It would have been easier to do this before inserting the elastic...but anyway, I like how pretty the pull-up with ribbon looks!
Linking up to those fun parties.
