At first I was really set on using a couple of prints from Patty Young's Andalucia line, but ultimately decided on these fun prints from Joann: Flower and Fruit patchwork and pink strawberries and cherries.
It was a LOT (!) of work to make this skirt. Mostly, because I do not own a serger (Honey; hint, hint!, see Wish-List to the left). Folding and pressing the ruffles, finishing the raw ends on the inside and working this tiny less than 1/4 inch wide double-fold bias tape binding on the lower edge took up most of the time. But, I think it was so worth it.
Unfortunately, I cannot show any pictures of my girls modeling the skirt yet. Since my rule is, no trying-on until two garments are finished to avoid any fighting and tantrums...
So, for tonight I'm off to finish the second one. And I am making them a little longer, so they can be worn this year (mid calf length) and next year (hopefully, knee length).
