Petite Chérie asked for a skirt. She went through my Ottobre magazines and picked this ruffled skit pattern.
A classic, easy to sew and that little girls love.
This ruffled skirt is #36 “No U turn” from the Ottobre “Spring” 1-2012 magazine : elasticated waist, with two panels finished by bias binding that are gathered to the waist band.
Sewn in size 134 (that’s the height of the child) for Petite Chérie who’s going on 9 years old.
A patchworked and embroidered denim purchased a few years ago in a local fabric store. I had a scrap left, that was just enough to make the skirt, yay!
I used a black satin bias binding to finish the lower edges.
Conclusion et pics
Voilà, not much more to add, this skirt is really easy, provided you don’t have a chronic aversion to gathers. My DD loves it and a second one is already done, I didn’t have the time to take pics of the second one… Wednesday probably. I prefer the 2nd version actually.
