We discoved a fun and easy way to make a beautiful skirt that only looks complicated! We used Ruffle Fabric(™) which is a pre-ruffled knit fabric. It comes in lots of varieties from a small lightweight ruffle, to a heavier wider ruffle, to a varigated ruffle that goes from small to wide, as well as stretch lace fabrics. These fabrics allow you to make a skirt in a flash that looks like it took forever, but it is really a sinch! You can get this awesome fabric on the Ruffle Fabric website. All of the pictures above were made using different types of ruffle fabric and our new patterns. We also designed our third free pattern in our trio of free patterns to be released at Quilt Festival in Houston.
Adult Skirt Patterns
There are three different skirts each with multiple variations, from length, to direction of fabric, to type of fabric, which will make many different adorable skirts. We have the patterns available in both printed and downloadable PDF versions in our SHOP. We created one pattern that has all 3 skirt patterns in it, the printed pattern is $9, or $6 for a PDF download version; or you can buy the patterns for each skirt individually for $5 for a printed pattern, or $3 for a PDF download.
A circle skirt which is very full, and looks flattering on anyone!
An a-line skirt with a slimmer profile that can be made with or without a lining.
A slim form fitting pencil skirt.
Kid Skirt Patterns
There is also three different skirt designs for kids. We also have these patterns available in both printed and downloadable PDF versions in our SHOP. Again, we created one pattern that has all 3 skirt patterns in it, the printed pattern is $9, or $6 for a PDF download version; or you can buy the patterns for each skirt individually for $5 for a printed pattern, or $3 for a PDF download.
An easy circle skirt that can be made full maxi, or knee length.
An a-line skirt made from cotton with an option for a decorative tulle overlay.
A full tutu style tulle skirt.
And as promised we did create a free pattern that uses this fun Ruffle Fabric(™) and a cute t-shirt of your choice! I designed the pattern to make an easy maxi dress for my daughter, but you can use the same method to make a dress for yourself too!
There is joy and wonder everywhere when you see the world through the eyes of a child.
