ruffles, ruffles and more ruffles

oh my lord, this top was a mission and a half, but doesn't it look sweet? I followed the tutorial here, but ran out of fabric in the end because I didn't realise when she said you need 'half yards of fabric' - that she really meant - you need like 'loads' of half yards!! I had just over a metre of fabric - and towards the end, my ruffles had to get less full to finish the top.

I made this as a practice top because I planned on making one each for 2 special little 'soon to be' birthday girls that I know. Half way through making this, I decided I'd buy them a present instead of sewing this damn top again - but at the end, I love it so much (and of course I love them dearly too) so they'll be getting one too :)

Thanks for the link libs, but next time you make it first and let me know how it goes eh?

  1. Really lovely Julie! I like your version with fewer ruffles though. Original might be too much on bigger girls. Looking forward to making one too!
