Still waiting for the Arielle skirt tutorial? Yeah, I know, I'm bad like that - I don't always deliver like I want to... kids, au pair and life i general get in the way of my plans. But I do have a tutorial for you - my All Ruffly dress. The girls were invited to a birthday party Wednesday, and they were going straight from school, so they "needed" something easy to change into, and not too cold. Princess
bought picked out this fabric over a year ago, she loves it. So I kind of decided that it was time to use it. I made the dress in 10-15 minutes inbetween job and the girls' choir practice.
ruffled fabric, length from chest to desired length.
Cut the t-shirt underneath the sleeves - there has to be something left for seam allowance.
Put the t-shirt on top of the ruffled fabric, cut a diagonal line from the top of the ruffled fabric out to the edge, on both sides - the skirt will be a little a-line, but not fully. Sorry, I don't have a picture of this. Sew up the side seams of the skirt - where you cut it. Then attach the skirt to the t-shirt, make a flower of the leftovers from the sides you cut off and voila:
