The girls had a celebration at school during the week for having attended 100 days of school.
Of course they asked for something new to wear and of course, I obliged!

I picked this ruffled fabric up a while back at Spotlight because I've seen all sorts of great projects on the web using ruffled fabric but it's expensive to ship from the US because of the volume of it.
You can have the ruffles falling straight down or hanging in this curved/looped fashion as shown below.
I decided to make another of the full circle skirts from Dana of Made It.
That way I could get the ruffles to run in a variety of directions, some up and some down around the skirt.
|This is a really full skirt that is light and 'fluffy'!|
It would be near impossible to hem this fabric but when the skirt is hanging it's the unevenness is not very noticeable at all.
This skirt is really good 'bang for your buck' sewing - it looks far more impressive, and difficult, than it is!
Two skirts and two headbands completed in one Olympics watching evening - not bad going.
Third skirt is on its way - cream with black edging - my local Spotlight store still had some in stock - luckily for me.
