Cute Ruffled Skirt


I am always looking for cute outfits that my kids can play it. Clothes that look decent but don't cost a ton. I don't want my kids to look like raga-muffins :) I found this ruffled skirt tutorial on Grand Revival Designs. I used some scraps that I thought Cambryn would wear and wha la. It look me all of 30-45 min to complete. So Easy. I am all about instant gratification. I then went to walmart spent $4 on a shirt made a flower out of the same fabric and put some swarovski crystals on it --Cute outfit she can play in for under $10.

Today I took Cambryn to the store and let her pick out some fabric to make 3 more skirts. I think we will find some plain tanks and decorate the fronts to match. I love Girls.

That is sooo cute! Amazing that it only took you 40 minutes. I think I would take an hour just to read the directions. Then I would think about it for an hour. Then I would give up and beg you to do it for me!

What?! That is crazy!

That was my for real outloud response to this post. I am still afraid of my sewing machine, so this kind of magic would never happen for me. Next time you come to Utah, could you please give me some tutorials? :)

That skirt would have taken me 3 or 4 hours to make! That is why I just gave up. I wish you lived close, I would pay you to make Alexa stuff. She would absolutely love that outfit!
