My latest project are these cute pettiskirts. Love how they turned out, hated making them. Even with a ruffler I had a hard time making these skirts. Ruffler damaged two needle clamps on my machine and made my life miserable. But I was not going to go to a no ruffler option because it seems to be too much work. If you don’t know what a ruffler is you should check it out on Google. It’s a scary looking gadget, but once you figure it out you can’t live without it.
Back to the skirts. I don’t know how people make them for a living. I made three in a week and a half and was so sick of them by the end of the third skirt. Too much fabric, too many ruffles. But the end result is adorable that is why I kept going.

As usual I spent a lot of time
procrastinating researching the tutorials online and then took a little bit out of each one. Mostly I returned to this tutorial while sewing. It is very detailed and has lots of pictures.
