Double Ruffle Skirt {or swoon}


Emma has reached the stage where she won't stand still to have her picture taken. She's moving all over the place. She's also not yet old enough to bribe into standing still. I think the next couple of months might offer a lot of blurry photos.


Exhibit A. But oh that face! That's her determined to get whatever piece of technology I have in my hands face.


This skirt has been kicking around in my head for a while now. I knew I wanted to make a two layered ruffle skirt. Then, I stumbled upon The Cabbage Rose.

The Cabbage Rose is a wonderful, magical place that I should never go back into. It's a locally owned, wonderfully sweet designer fabric shop with a huge selection. 

I wondered around The Cabbage Rose in a stupor. I was a big old pile of overwhelmed. I ended up buying four different 1/4 yd cuts.


These two fabrics are from the Ruby line by Bonnie & Camille for Moda. I have been swooning over the aqua and coral combination for awhile now. I'm not brave enough to wear it. I'm so glad I finally made something for Emma using the color combo.

This was such a fun and simple skirt to make. I'm sure there will be more of these in my little miss' future.

Have a wonderful weekend!
