When I saw the petticoat skirt tutorial over at Alisa Burke, I thought it was just the cutest little skirt ever. I don't think I'd have the guts to wear something like that in public, but I knew Blockette would, especially if I made a pink version. My intention was to give it to her for her birthday. Alas, that was not to be.
Lucky for me, I cut those ruffle strips with pinking sheers. I wanted them to have a raw looking edge, but I wanted to keep the fraying under control. So I just cut down the back of the dress with the pinking sheers. (You cannot believe how much I cringed when I did this.) Then, I attached some super wide lace at each side of the waistband, so now the ruffle skirt is a ruffle apron.
Yikes! Look at that huge gap. What was I thinking?
