Ruffle Summer Top for Little Momo

My fabric de-stashing attempt continues...  I am especially trying to use up the cotton fabrics, which I tend to buy more because they come in so many cute prints!
These are organic cotton I bought about 2 years ago, just when I started sewing for my daughter.  I started dress-making with a pillowcase dress, and I had a pillowcase dress in my mind when I bought them, buying only 1/2 yard each.  I could still make a pillowcase dress with them, but I am always wanting to try something new. I felt like making ruffles, so I picked a very simple design that I could add ruffles to it.

Shirred Summer Dress with Tiered Skirt for Little Momo

For the 4th summer dress for little Momo, I decided to try a shirred dress. I have seen shirred summer dresses and pre-shirred fabric, and I thought basically what I need to do was to shirr the fabric and make it into a tube. But I searched for shirred dress tutorial online to get a better idea, and found a beautiful one: Shirred Twirly Dress -From An Igloo

Girly Layered Skirt for Little Momo

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!
