I love the super girly ruffle fabric I’ve been seeing everywhere. The only problem was that I wasn’t seeing it at my usual fabric store. So when I went to a different store, away from my usual runnings around, and saw a couple of different bolts of ruffle fabric, I just had to get it.
I decided to make an Easter skirt for Caitlin. And it was so super simple to make and no pattern needed. Bonus!
Ruffle Fabric (I used less than a yard)
1 inch elastic
Thread to match fabric
First you need to take two really easy measurements.
Waist: Measure your child’s waist where you want the skirt to sit. Then double it. So, Caitlin’s waist is 18 inches. 18 x 2 = 36 (fabric measurement) Then take that waist measurement + 1 for the elastic. 18 +1 = 19 inches of elastic.
Length: Measure from waist to how long you want the skirt to be. Since Caitlin is so tall, I made hers 24 inches long.
Cut your fabric making sure to keep the ruffles out of the way. You only want to cut between the ruffles.
