Really Ruffles Skirt

Disclaimer: I have a little baby girl.
 If you've ever had a baby girl or if you have one that you're close to, you'll understand this post. 

I wanted to buy my baby girl a Christmas dress but my hubby claims that she has too many clothes already (which might be true, but what's one more dress?).

I took matters into my own hands. I pulled out my scraps and started sewing. I had looked on Pinterest and found this tutorial from Simple Simon & Co. and this tutorial from Sweetie Pie Bakery. I read through them before I started my baby's skirt. Here's what I came up with:


The only problem I encountered was that I was out of white fabric. So I had to use some hot pink fabric that I had as the base of the skirt. Most of the time you won't see it, but every now and then it'll peek out.


It also felt like it took me a million and a half years to finish those ruffles. But they are sooo worth it! I love ruffles, especially on baby buns.


Now she has a skirt to not only wear on Christmas day, but she WILL wear it to the church Christmas party, to see Santa, and any other Christmas activity we do. It took me too long to see her wear it only once.


And she's just too cute in it!

Thanks for dropping by!

  5. I love it Kathryn. It's so cute! I totally know how you feel about wanting Gracie to wear it to everything, over and over again. That's how I felt about Hailey's halloween costume. You put so much work into it, so they better wear it again and again!

  6. You did a great job. There's nothing I like more than seeing a baby in a dress their mama made. I know exactly what you mean about ruffles taking forever. I just finished two dresses with ruffles.
