You just take your ruler and measure up 6 inches and chop the bottom off...then you insert a ruffle in the middle and on the bottom and sew it back together. I spend a lot of time cutting material into smaller pieces and sewing it back together, so I guess it's no surprise that I'm pumped up about this little red skirt.
OOpps!! I think I went over the edge! I did the double ruffle and then when I sewed it together and shook it out...it screamed APRON!!. Don't get me wrong...I LOVE to wear aprons, but usually not to church...but what's done is done...and next week is another week, and I can make this cute little skirt without any ruffles out of 1 1/2 yds of material and without ruffles, it will go much quicker...and I did a great job on the zipper, so I'll still count it as a success!!
Upon closer inspection of the instructions for the double ruffle, I see that it is NOT applied in the same manner. It was not hemmed, but double over and gathered...hmmm...is it worth taking that whole part out and redoing??? I may just wear it first and see...I guess to start out with, I'll sleep on it.
Have a good tomorrow... I'll let you know...
