Hi ladies, I'm very excited to share with you my latest creation. It took me a few days to finish, mainly because of lack of time, but finally, I bring you this short Tutorial.
All you need is:
1) I laid the skirt out on a flat surface
2) I decide where I wanted the ruffles to start on the skirt. I felt that half of the skirt looked best. Where you start the ruffles really depends on your taste! Measure how much material you will need to go around and the length you perfer as well. Cut the material accordingly leaving a little extra on the closing side for mistake wiggleroom and the ruffle effect. Instead of cutting two pieces (one for back and one for front) I just cut one big piece so the closure would be on one side only.
3) Using pins, secure the ruffle piece into place stretching it out as you pin.
4) Start sewing the ruffle piece on! I love this material, because no hemming at the bottom is required (unless you are a perfectionist!) because the ruffles cover it! On the side, instead of closing it up completely I just stitched in the middle to create more of a ruffle effect. The lovely part of this material is that it allows for mistakes, it is very forgiving!
And now rejoice at your finished creation! Yay!
