Easy to make, although cutting half circles for the cascade style ruffles took a bit long. Cute style. Fabric used
Various knits--c/l, interlock, and jersy Pattern alterations or any design changes you made or would recommend
For the skirt base, I did a rolled hem to give it a bit more of a finished look. I also used a zigzag stitch to sew ruffles in place, instead of straight stitch. The tutorial does not specify, just says sew them on, but I wanted to make sure thread doesn't break if pulled or tugged at.Would you sew this pattern again?
I would not recommend using cotton interlock as it is bulky and heavy, so it did not fall as nicely. All those ruffles weigh the skirt down pretty well. I would suggest a jersey or a light weight cotton lycra for the cascading ruffles.
I would also alter the half circle pattern itself to be more narrow, so the ruffles lay closer to the body and ruffle more-- as well as not be so heavy. The bulky ruffles I find very unattractive--maybe very cute on a diapered tot though . For a tween? not sure, though my daughter absolutely loves this skirt.
