So, I have been wanting to do a tutorial on this kind of skirt for some time now, and this weekend seemed like a good opportunity.
The tutorial is far from perfect, and it will be uploaded when I have made a few more skirts and improved the tutorial a bit.
The skirt is made of green cotton and some white flower-sprinkled cotton-blend, app. a meter of each.
It is constructed of a lining with ruffled layers and an elastic waist. No zipper needed! It is fast and easy to make, even for a beginner.
The skirt is a bit more “sweet lolita” than first intended, but I like it anyway. A bunch of these will easily fit in a suitcase, and they will be perfect for the summer days to come!
It is called the “cupcake” skirt, as the ruffles and the fabric reminds me of the frosting and springles on a big, tasty cupcake!
1 m white cotton blend with green flowers, 1 m green cotton, 73 cm 3,5 cm wide elastic for the waist, 1 label, tread.
Plan a weekend getaway in these sweater dresses and furry accessories.
