Ruffle Skirt Part 2

So you remember this skirt i made? If not check it out HERE



So here is part TWO it's a wrap that buttons around the skirt.....maybe to keep the skirt a little cleaner or just to make it even cuter? I'll let you decide





First i took the ruffle skirt and sewed a button the right side of the waistline

Next i made my own pattern for the wrap it looked like this,as simple as this shape looks it was alot harder than you think to make! So i suggest if you plan on making one...make it similar to this shape, and then trim as you need to make it fit your child.

I then cut out 2 of my pattern piece and sewed them right sides together leaving an opening at the top for turning it, once i turned it i ironed it and then topstiched around the whole thing (sewing closed the opening)

Next i sewed a buttonhole on the left upper corner

Then i place the skirt on the wrap and buttoned it to make sure i had it where i wanted it

Then i made 2 more buttonholes on the right side

Lined up and sewed the buttons 

And there you got it!


So cute.




There is SO many possibilities for this wrap and so many different kinds of fabric you could use to make it! I know I'm still having fun experimenting!

Here's a couple more i made as you can tell - I'm probably obsessed with making them!

Love the light pink for spring!


This one brings back great memories of a skirt i made Hailey last year that looks similar but that i no longer have.



Another favorite

Well that's all!

Have a great Monday!

  1. THIS is the most adorable skirt I've ever seen! If I was that child, you'd NEVER get that skirt off me! Mom tells me I only wore skirts/dresses as a child, lol
