Simple Layer Skirt with Ruffle

Mark referred to me as a clothing factory yesterday. I think I'll take that as a compliment. :)

It's totally addicting, this making clothes business. I haven't stopped. I recently counted and I still have 7-8 more sewing projects to get done between now and July (when it will be time to start on all the fall ones, so I'm thinking this will never be done).

Don't worry, all you non-sewers, I have no plans to turn this into a sewing blog. And birthday party season is upon us, so you will be seeing a bunch of projects for that. I don't know who is more excited, Mady or me. :)

The weather has been gorgeous this weekend. I didn't really get to enjoy it too much though because I started working on the never ending project. Let's just say it involved a lot of chiffon and ruffles. Good thing the girls enjoy playing outside and out of my way since it's hard to walk through a living room of ruffles.

So, since working on the project that won't die end, I needed a reminder about simpler times. Like when I made this skirt for Mady. In a nap-time. Yup, it's that simple.

(oh the sass! Check out the foot! I fear asking where she gets it from...)

Some of you will recognize this fabric from the apron set I made. Well, Mady requested a dress from it. I didn't have enough left for a dress and the fabric store didn't have any more in stock. But thankfully there was enough (with the addition of a ruffle on the bottom) to make her a skirt and that seemed to appease her. I used Dana's Simple Skirt tutorial from MADE (the layered version). I love her stuff. Her whole blog makes me happy!

So if you need a quick skirt and you don't have a ton of fabric, this is the way to go.
