(This pattern was formally known as the Raw Edge Ruffle Skirt. It's had a name change and a bit of a makeover to highlight the fact that you can make it as a conventionally hemmed ruffle skirt and not just with a raw edge finish.)
SIZES: Girls 1-2, 3-4, 5-6 & 7-8
The Ruffle-cious Skirt is a girly, twirly skirt with attitude and a must for every little girl's wardrobe! The pattern is easy to cut and sew and results in a gorgeous skirt with a perfectly proportioned series of ruffles every time. Make the skirt in a casual denim or solid print or mix it up with different prints for a fun and funky individual style.
The pattern comes in epattern (downloadable) format and is an easy-to-make girls sewing pattern for sewers of all levels. The skirt can be made in four sizes which cover girls aged from 1 to 8 years.
The skirt features a dropped waistband and three ruffles (tiers) which can either be left with raw (frayed) edges or hemmed for a more conventional look. There is a clever little hidden connecting band constructed from narrow pieces of fabric which joins the waistband and upper ruffle to the middle and bottom ruffles. This helps you put the skirt together and reduces the number of gathered layers which need to be sewn through.
The professionally designed PDF pattern includes an easy to follow tutorial and full size pattern pieces for all sizes. Seam allowances are included so there's no need to add, calculate or draw anything. Just print the pattern pieces and off you go.
