Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Gather ruffles

Pattern Description:

I love to combine appliqu and lots of prints in my creations so came up with this sassy skirt I've named the Audrey Ruffle Skirt. The pattern has 3 variations for the front and all are the perfect canvas for applique or some of the beautiful large scale prints that are available. The back is covered in ruffles that can be one print or 6... or any number in between. The skirt has a flat front waistband with elastic across the back to give the skirt a fitted look while still allowing for ease of dressing.

The e-book includes:
* 3 variations of the basic skirt
* 38 pages of instructions to make skirts in sizes 7/8 to 14/16
* 80 color photos and illustrations
* Printable pattern pages
* Also includes instructions and pattern pieces to make a skirt for 15 - 18" dolls or stuffed animals

Materials you'll need:
* Woven 'quilters' cotton or similar weight: Up to 6 prints for a total of 1 - 2 yards depending on the skirt size and style

* Thread
* 1" elastic cut to length for waist back
* 1" x 16" piece of medium weight interfacing
* Trim such as rickrack (optional)

Equipment you'll need:
Sewing machine, scissors, ruler or measuring tape, iron and ironing board, straight pins

Recommended equipment:
Although a serger is optional, I love the detail it adds as an edge finish on the ruffles. Of course a traditional hem can be used with equal success.
