1  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Discussion and Questions / Re: Is there a tute or pattern for a tiered ruffle skirt? on: March 05, 2010 04:04:05 PM
My dd has a top of that style and it is constructed using tiers with ruffles added.  It might be hard to understand without pics, but I think I would start out by cutting pieces for a regular tiered skirt.  Then take the bottom tier and make a gathered ruffle for it and baste it onto that bottom tier.  Then sew that piece to the next tier piece up.  Then make a gathered ruffle piece to fit the 2nd from bottom tier and baste that on, attach to top tier, make a gathered ruffle for top tier, baste to top tier piece, then sew that onto your top piece which would either be waistband piece or what I like to do, a drop waist piece since I like my girls to have a tad longer skirts.  When cutting your ruffle pieces to fit the tier pieces, I'd make the ruffle pieces about an inch wider than the tier pieces so that the ruffle (which will need to be hemmed) will still be long enough to cover the base tier skirt so you don't seen the seam for the next ruffle under it.  Pheww...hope that makes some sense. Smiley

that's very pretty!  I think it's cool your hubby wants a say in the wardrobe, and picked the fabric!

I think they are for the most part easy.  I bought some when I was very new to sewing, and was able to follow along well. You download and print them.  The ones that have pattern pieces print also, you just have to line up and tape them together.  I then trace mine onto pattern ease.  I really don't buy them anymore though, I think they are a bit too much money, and for the most part you can find a tutorial or pattern elsewhere for free or cheap.

I am using binders and page protectors.  All my instructions go in, then in the page protector behind the intstructions, I put my tracings.
