POV {Skirts}

Are you ready for round one of Point of View?  If you aren't sure what I am talking about, go check out this post and then come back. 

I am working with some A-MAZING-LY talented women here!  You are gonna want to check out all of these:

Here are the links to go check out the other skirts.

6. Me! You are here! Scroll down to see how I made this easy peasy skirt

Pre-ruffled Fabric
(I bought both here)

This skirt took me approximately 10 min to make.  Seriously.

Step #1 Measure waist and cut the elastic to fit.

Step #2 Stretch elastic and pin to fabric while elastic is stretched.

Step #3 Cut fabric where the elastic stops.  Simply cut the fabric into a rectangle making sure you have the desired length.

Step #4 Sew the elastic onto the fabric by simply top stitching (no heming or surging required with this awesome fabric)

Step #5 Put right sides together and sew the side together.

Step #6 Put it on your little girl and realize that you made it too big, so you have to cut a few inches off the bottom and take it in a little bit.

Step #7 Enjoy!

Here are some pictures of Lillie wearing the skirt.  It turned out to fit perfectly and I think she looks pretty dang cute if I do say so myself.

 And this one is simply for fun since you can't actually see the skirt. It's my blog and I love this picture and wanted to you go.

Now it's your turn!  Head on over to Stacy's blog and link up your skirt projects that you have been working on!  And who knows? Your skirt might just get featured!  Thanks for joining in and we hope to see you next month!  I can't wait to tell you our next theme!
Pin It!

I love this skirt Jonie! Who knew that awesome ruffle fabric came in polka dots? It's a dangerous discovery for me. ;)

Stacy said...

Pre-ruffled??? There is a whole world (of fabric and sewing stuff) out there I knew nothing about! I love that this was so easy. IF I had a girl I would try this out :)

This is so cute, Jonie, and I can't believe how quick and easy it was! I've seen the ruffle fabric before, now I need to get my hands on some.
