21  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / I've Gone Skirt Crazy! (pic fatty) on: February 27, 2010 09:28:25 AM
I've been on a skirt binge lately.  They're so cute and so easy!

Sorry the color is off.  I had to use my phone since I can't find the charger for my real camera.

This one is wrinkly because it's pic was taken post wearing.

This one is for a friend's kid whose birthday party we're going to this afternoon.  I made it according to the waist measurement she gave me, but it looks huge.  Hopefully it's not too big.

and one action shot

Just finished this up for a birthday party this afternoon.  It holds 8 jumbo crayons.  I think it would also hold 16 regular crayons if you put 2 in each pocket.  This is the second one I've made.  The first was functional, but not great.  This is version 2.0 and much better!

They look really cute!

After seeing these and the other dresses you've made recently, I may have to go buy that pattern.

Your going to have to sew a piece of fabric to the tier above, so that you get the drop down you need, then sew your ruffle to that dropped down piece of fabric, rinse and repeat.  Doing it that way will keep the poofyness down, if you were to just make the second ruffle 2 or 3 times longer than the first and then ruffle together, your gonna get POOFY.  You may have to work from the lower ruffle to the higher ruffle and then sew it to the waist band of the skirt.  

I'm sorry, I am not being able to comprehend what you're saying.  

Do you mean making a tiered skirt then adding ruffles on top?

Or are you meaning a three layer skirt w/ each layer being a different length all with ruffles on their bottoms sewn into one waistband?

Both of those seem like they'd be pretty poofy to me.  Or do you mean something else all together?

The way I was kinda picturing it in my head, I'd make a base skirt.  Maybe like a pencil skirt or an a-line, then sew three wide ruffles to that skirt, or maybe just 2 ruffles and the third would be the hem of the base skirt.  But I'd need some guidance on how to make the base skirt and how long the ruffles needed to be before gathering.

I wish I could look at how the example I linked to was put together.

Thanks, but those aren't really what I'm looking for.  I want the ruffles to be loose at the bottom, not sewed into the next tier.  I can make a basic gathered tiered twirl skirt. 

I'm really just wondering how to shape the base skirt that the three ruffles would be sewn to.
