This skirt can be as complicated or simple as you would like. All I did was copy a skirt that my daughter has. I made the waist band 4 inches wide.
It also has a cute little ruffle
The backside of the skirt
The skirt is even made of 2 layers.
- Find a skirt pattern that you like. Some of my favorites are here, here, and here. Or just search for skirt patterns or twirly dress patterns.
- Cut out all the pieces that you need. I made the yoke (or the waistband part) about 4 inches wide. I also only did the elastic on the back of the dress.
- Take the main body part of your skirt and randomly sew ribbon onto the fabric. I used a ton of scrap ribbon that I had from other projects. I sewed on 3 layers of ribbon. The top layer was random small pieces of ribbon that I used steam a seam (1/4 inch) and ironed them onto the fabric so that they would not move while I was sewing them.
- The next layer of ribbon I sewed them all in a straight line horizontally.
- The third and last layer of ribbon I sewed the ribbon all vertically onto the fabric.
- Now between 80-90% of the fabric is covered with ribbon. You don't have to do this much ribbon. If you want, pin the ribbon onto the fabric in the pattern that you are wanting and then sew the ribbon that way.
- Now trim off the extra ribbon that is hanging over the edge of the fabric.
- Sew the skirt together following the directions.
