Welcome and a Refashioned Skirt

Hi everyone and welcome to my blog.  I am a first time blogger and am still trying to figure everything out.  Any helpful tips will be appreciated. 

For my first post I wanted to share with you a skirt that I refashioned for my daughter. 

My daughter received this hand me down skirt (love hand me downs), but he skirt part was faded and stained. 

So I removed the ruffles.

I picked out some bright, fun fabric and used the old ruffle as a guide to cut out the new one.
For the new skirt I decided to do a layered ruffle rather than a tiered one.

Once the you  sew up the sides of the ruffles layer them, gather and attached to the upper part of the skirt.

Top stitch.

And the skirt is done.  Fast, easy and way cute!

Sassy girl loves it too!
