Skirt number 4 in the 100 Skirts in 100 Days project is a Two-Tier Ruffle Skirt. This one looks so lovely and dainty, don’t you think? I have no idea who makes this fabric, but I think it found it way into my hands years ago. My best friend called me one day to come over and see this big bag of fabric she had just received. She said it was from her recently deceased grandmother who, like most of us sewists, hoarded lots of fabric. Seriously, I couldn’t wait to see it all, especially since there was bound to be some vintage stuff in there. When I saw this lovely tiny printed yellow fabric, I asked if I could have it. I mean, look at it; it’s precious. This happened some years before the 100 Skirts Project was even thought about, so I didn’t really have a project in mind, but I knew I wanted this lovely fabric. In fact, when I was ironing it in order to make this skirt, I could smell my own great grandmother’s home. Does that sound weird? It was so familiar and awesome. However, I wasn’t sure how many people would appreciate that like me, so I actually pre-washed the fabric before I started. Funny thing about this fabric: I cannot remember where in the world I got that polka dot fabric. Not only do flowers and polka dots go together pretty perfectly, but that sweet polka dot fabric matches the awesome mini flowers exactly. You guys, I couldn’t wait to finish this skirt and see the finished product, but I wanted it to be perfect for the little girl who would receive it so I patiently created it and took my time. Creating the bias tape hem was a bit more time consuming than I would’ve liked, but I knew it would add an adorable finishing touch and pull in that drop-waist section wonderfully. This is my favorite skirt so far. I know it’s only the 4th skirt for the project, but I just LOVE it! Follow our 100 Skirts in 100 Days series on instagram @be_so_crafty.
