I am a girly girl who loves ruffles.
I have always wanted a ruffly skirt/petticoat which I could wear on its own and under too short skirts/dresses. My sister has a ruffly skirt which I borrowed while visiting her last summer, I loved that skirt (I even offered to buy it from her :D, she said no off course)
Anyways, I had some time on my hands last week, so I decided to make my own ruffly skirt out of old t-shirts. This skirt did not cost me anything. I already had everything on hand.
Here is the finished product
For the base of the skirt I started out with this flowy top which I got from Target a few years ago. It has seen better days.
I carefully cut off the sleeves and the top portion off.
I ended up with a skirt base
Then I dug up some old t shirts, most of them were my hubby's old work t shirts which he put in the donate pile. Some were mine
Completely off the topic, but every summer I buy myself at least two plain white t shirts and they always end up shrunken, augh!
I cut three inch wide strips
I do not show you how to ruffle fabric since there are so many tutorials out there.
But I ruffled all of the strips
I sewed on the top ruffle and then I sewed on this trim I had on hand
Then I marked where I wanted the strips to go and went to work sewing them on.
Whew. All done
Total cost: $0.00!
Thanks for visiting!
