This is a fun little skirt to make! This Pink Fig pattern is simply made with strips of fabric. There are 6 ruffles in all. What I love about this skirt is how the ruffles lay on top of one another making the skirt very full and fun to twirl in. There is a lot of gathering in this project. I did use my ruffler foot, which saved a lot of time. I ruffled each strip set on every 6th stitch, sewing the ends together afterwards, and then running a gathering stitch after that. I tried it with and without the ruffler foot. After using the ruffler foot, you only have to gather it slightly. I purchased coordinating quilt fabric thru Joanns.com. Quilt fabric does make the skirt pretty heavy, but is perfect for winter wear. I think it would be fun to make this in a variety of batiste fabrics for the summer!
