this is the fabric i scored…a beautfiul mint…the very edges of the ruffle is a bit darker…which makes it have so much more dimension! RF-06SmoothMintGreen-2

I love maxi skirts—




and my daughter has gotten onto the maxi skirt trend! It was her birthday so I decided to whip one up for her in her favorite color! It’s so easy…just measure and cut….and sew (down the two sides–yellow dashes) how to sew a maxi skirt

Ruffle fabric tip: when sewing make sure that the ruffles are all pointing down….This is one fabric I always pin so I can keep the ruffles in place!

Then I just add an elastic band. (did you know ruffle fabric also has the most adorable elastic!! go here!)
