ruffle skirt

I wanted to make a cute skirt for myself, but didn't want to spend a lot of time.  So, I cut out a simple skirt from MADE, but before sewing it together, I did a little embellishing with some ruffles.

4 rows of them to be exact.
For anyone interested in ruffles, mine are 1 inch wide.  I cut them twice as wide as the skirt, and then gathered to the same width as the skirt using a long stitch running down the center of each strip.

I think it's cute, and I might make another one out of something a little lighter weight!

Adorable. And I love that it's elastic waist! Does this pattern come in big huge large for fatuns like me? I am still living in elastic waisted stuff and I think I will be for a long time!

I have a shirt that would be adorable with that skirt. If I decide to try and make it am I allowed to bug you with questions?

ps. I wore the blue skirt you made me to church last Sunday!
