Ruffle Skirt

If a poor workmen blames his tools, I'm thinking my new sewing machine rocks! This skirt was a compilation of things I'd never tried before. But it was actually reasonably easy (Except for ruffling the brown material, which didn't pull easily for some reason). The brown material was about twice the length of the layer above, but could easily have been longer. There is a white cotton layer under the layer of the shiny material, to make sure that the skirt wasn't see through, and also wasn't scratchy. The waist is simple elastic.

Here is a beautiful simple tutorial on on how sew ruffles.

Notice the fairy wings I made a few days ago that haven't yet left the fairy's back (except at night). Luckily they should be fairly easy to wash!
