The Ruffle Pop Skirt

I'm finally back at the sewing machine, after a frantic few weeks of custom fabric designing, and photography assignments!  I've got a few projects on the go - this is the first...

I had a piece of fabric looking for a home...and decided on a quick and simple skirt for Miss 6.  The fabrics in the skirt are two of my designs...if you want to replicate the look, links to get hold of them are at the bottom of the post.

This is another from Jen of Tie Dye Diva.  I like her patterns as they are fast and easy and I don't have to read the instructions over and over again to get it right!  It's called the Ruffle Pop skirt, and it goes from a size 2 through 8.  A great quick sew.

I opted to use pre-ruffled eyelet for the trim.  I had no idea it even existed till last week...  I'm not a big ruffle fan - all that gathering usually puts me off!!  But this was too too simple, and I will most certainly be using it again.  Plus I think it looks really sweet :)

The hardest part of the whole process was getting a photo of the finished skirt!  My daughter has taken to silly "model" posing whenever I ask...  It's a bit like pulling teeth to get a decent shot right now...but you get the idea anyway!

The main fabric for the skirt is this one:

Birdy Daisies Aqua Blue v2.1 Smaller

and the matching stripe is this one:

Yellow and Blue Stripe

Have a great weekend!
