Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Gathering ruffles

Pattern Description:

Every girl I know loves to twirl. The Sophia Tiered Skirt is designed with extra 'twirl power'. It uses 3 prints - one for each tier and one for the yoke and ruffle. Although I start off with giving a specific number of prints to use for each skirt, you're certainly not limited to those. Each skirt can give you the chance to use as many or as few prints as you want. I love to use my remnants and scraps from previous sewing projects to create truly one of a kind skirts with no 2 pieces of the same print.

The e-book includes:
* 10 pages of instructions to make skirts in sizes 2 to 16

Materials you'll need:
* Woven 'quilters' cotton or similar weight: yardage varies depending on the skirt size and style as well as the number of prints used

* Thread
* 3/4" elastic cut to length for waist

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

Recommended equipment:
