Ruffle Mini Skirt: What I’m Makin Monday

I made Lil’ J the easiest little ruffle skirt right before St. Patricks Day. Sadly, I didn’t take photos during the process, so this post isn’t a tutorial, but I hope to make one this week. I didn’t follow a pattern but I used some sewing tools that made it easy breezy, and I will share that when I post it.
It was all made with scrap fabric I had that could have been thrown away. Instead I turned it into what my mom called a little “cheerleader skirt.”

She even looks like a mini cheerleader being tossed up by daddy.

We celebrated my husband’s graduation and had a blast with family visits, now it’s time to pack and prepare to move. Sorry I’m not very chatty around these parts lately, promise I’ll be back to my normal self soon.

In the mean time, I leave you with a preview of the skirt tutorial I’m going to work on. Don’t mind the name “Journey” on Lil’ J’s shirt. That’s her “stage name” for when she does Etsy and boutique modeling. It’s a cute name, but not what hers really is.

What do you think? Adorable, no?

I LOVE the little ruffle skirt! Too bad I don’t have a little girl to make one for! 🙂 She is precious. I have followed your blog since you were pregnant but I don’t know if I have ever commented before! Have a great day!

Such a cute outfit and lil J is so stinking adorable

karajean says:

Adorable skirt! And all this time I thought I was so clever for figuring out her name was Journey. Back to the drawing board, I guess 🙂

Love the skirt. And that picture of her and her dad is amazing- you always get great shots!

How did you come up with her stage name?

Sharon says:

That is adorable!! I finished a Kitty Cat hat today.

Loved meeting you today at Hildie’s. That ruffly outfit that your little one is sporting is so incredibly adorable. (I’d love to make one, but then again, my daughter is a little too old for a ruffled bum.)

emily says:

Adorable! Can’t wait to bookmark the tutorial for future use. 🙂

That outfit is so freaking cute! I love the picture with her father…she looks so happy.
