Bitty Ruffle Skirt

Barter: (v) to trade by exchange of commodities rather than by use of money 

Remember learning about bartering in grade school? I remember taking a toy to school and all the kids got to exchange toys. I remember thinking, "Why don't we do this all the time...but with everything?!" 


I know what you're thinking...What does this have to do with ANYTHING?

My friend just had a beautiful baby girl. She is also an amazing photographer. I really want to make my photos look more beautiful, so the other day I text her and asked if we could trade a ruffle skirt for her girl for photo editing skills. She was totally okay with it! I was so excited! Bartering!!

And so was born the Bitty Ruffle Skirt.

I LOVE this fabric. And no, there is no tutorial, but really...just go to Pinterest and type in ruffle skirt. They're really simple to make. Just time consuming. Or you can check out the 8 Ruffle Tutorials I posted about.

I wish I had one for my baby girl! And if my friend doesn't like the tulle on the bottom, she can easily just cut it off! No worries.
