Goooorgeous! I love that it looks expensive (which considering the time you put into it, is justified). So great!

Thank you so much for all the sweet comments!    Cheesy   Just an fyi if you try to make this skirt:  Go slow and steady when you sew the seam in the back.  Be sure to shake down the ruffles so they're laying flat.  Otherwise, you'll end up with some ruffles sewn upwards in the seam.  You don't generally notice it, but it bugs me! Wink Good luck!

I purchased the ruffle fabric from www.rufflefabric.com  It's a 2" ruffle on the skirt...and honestly it is rather pricey.  The fabric itself is nice though.  I have seen 1" ruffle fabric on ebay, and recently on the clearance section at Joann's.  (However, it was clearanced out at the wearhouse, it never was actually sold at my store on the normal racks.)  I did already answer this question somewhere in the first page of comments...you might want to read through them as I don't remember if I put more information there or not.

woops!  i'm so sorry!  i suppose i should have checked through the thread before asking a question that's already been asked   Embarrassed

thank you for sharing that site.  that's actually the only site i came across when i searched for ruffle fabric but i guess i was hoping you might have known of some super secret site with great prices Smiley  wishful thinking, huh?

i'm going to check back through the thread to see if anyone else has dropped a tid bit or two about other places they might have seen this fabric.
either way, your skirt is so gorgeous that it totally looks worth the price of that expensive fabric! Wink
