And here is the second ruffled skirt from the Ottobre pattern “No U Turn”. The first one (in denim) can be seen here: Ruffled skirt – Ottobre.
Sorry for the delay in taking the pics but I wasn’t able to see my daughter by daylight before yesterday!
This ruffled skirt is #36 “No U turn” from the Ottobre “Spring” 1-2012 magazine : elasticated waistband, with two panels finished by bias binding
The pattern consists simply of 3 rectangles.
Sewn in size 134 (that’s the height of the child in cm) for Petite Chérie who’s going to be 9 years old soon.
Two coordinated fabrics from the Cool Cords collection by designer Ann Kelle for Robert Kaufman. The 2 fabrics are “Dahlia in Blue Jay” and “Dahlia in White.”
I bought the fabric from Hawthrone threads.
I used the white print for the two ruffled panels and the blue print for the waistband and the bias binding.
About the bias binding: I did not actually cut it on the bias, I cut it straight in the grainline. Indeed, the ruffled panels don’t have curves, they are rectangles, so this solution works perfectly while also saving fabric.
Here are the pictures, the light was not ideal, but there was nothing I could do about it !
My daughter prefers this second version she finds it more cheerful. She also wore this skirt with her red fur vest yesterday and the ensemble is very cute. Unfortunately I do not have pictures of the two worn together, so you’ll have to take my word for it !
Oh and by the way, the angel halo was not my idea !
And that’s where the nonsense begins !
Joyeux Noël !
