Ruffled skirt – Ottobre design

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.

    • Agreed I find that it’s the nice finishing touches that give a garment a better quality look. That’s something I’ve come to learn sewing Colettte Patterns, I love their attention to details.
      Ottobre is, in a different style, similar in that regard : lots of nice details even on simple projects.

  1. I know that my daughter will love this skirt. She has a green one that we bought but it is geeting too short for her to wear it. I want to make her this skirt and I have the Ottobre magazine. Thank you.
