Ruffle Knit Skirt / StylePantry Inspiration !



Its been to long!!! :) 

I started work back ( I work at a school) just a few weeks ago , things have been so hectic that I haven't had time to post .. or even SEW ... 
The first week of school is always the most hectic because by the time I get home I am so exhausted that all I wanted to do is eat and go to bed. Now .. things have smoothed out a bit so I couldnt get back to doing what I love!! 


This skirt was a StylePantry inspiration. I love just about everything that she wears however when I saw this dress I HAD to make it ..



Here is the original dress : 


I KNOW .. absolutely gorgeous ... 

Once I figured out what type of fabric it was called ( Ruffle Knit) I went out and found it at my local Joanns .. the only ptoblem I found with their Ruffle Knit is that the Ruffle pieces where not nearly as long as the one Style Pantry is wearing ... So I ended up making it once( in white) .. and then again in a really pretty purple that i found . 



Constructing the white skirt proved to be a learning experience.. the first time that I made the skirt I made a front and back piece . 
That didn't work because the seam on each sides took away from the "free flowing" look of the ruffles ... Next I took a waist , hip , length to hip and waist to floor measurement. I marked these measurements on my tracing paper and formed the skirt. 
I then cut one piece on the fold . and flare it out towards the bottom . 












Overall I like how the skirt turned out ..
I do plan to do it again but I'm going to scrap the hip measurement and flare it out from waist to floor . 
( This time I began the flare after the hips)
