Layered Ruffle Skirt

I was shopping for clothes for Andrea last December and I saw this cutest 4-layer ruffle skirt at the mall. I didn't buy it (i.e. EXPENSIVE!!!), cute though it was. For a few days after, I had to restrain myself from going back to the mall to get it thinking it's something I can sew myself, if I can find similar fabric.

The skirt at the mall was made of 2 prints of complementing black and white fabric. In my stash, I had 2 black prints with flowers on them which looks cute when used together (that's why I bought them together a few months back). I started the skirt last year and wanted to finish before Christmas... but that didn't happen. Instead, I finished it yesterday.

  

It was a rushed project so I wasn't able to take pictures of the process. 

I love the prints on the fabric. I still have some left and I'm thinking I might make me a skirt too. 


Now Andrea needs something to go with this skirt... and for that, I have a tutorial (FINALLY!!!) in the works for you so stay tuned!

I am linking to the following parties:

Wow that's amazing! I have a skirt which looks like that but of course, I didn't make it myself :)

I can't wait for your tutorials and do matching skirts for Demi and Daisy. If ever, that will be my very first attempt to dress making. )
