Ruffle Skirt

The other day I was sorting through stacks of fabric in my craft room and I came across a couple of fine wale corduroy remnants - a rectangle & a long skinny piece. As I was looking at the pieces, an idea popped into my head (scary, I know).

45 minutes later, a ruffle skirt was born...

Straight-laced & sassy. Perfect for my 7 year old daughter. After seeing the selection of girls dress clothes at the department stores (short, tight, strappy & yucky), I'm predicting many mama-made skirts in her future.

Prudish moms rock...right?

You ROCK! I love it--so cute! I couldn't agree more with the clothes that are offered for little girls!

Why are the department stores tring to make our little girls look like they are in High school or worse?! Our little girls are angels not punk rockers!

I sew a lot of skirts for my little six year old!

Great thinking and good Job! She looks so cute in it with her boots on.:)
I think mom's will have to become a lot more creative, because the clothes in the stores are created for 20+ want to bees!
