Li’l Dumpling Girls Skirt

I was talking with a friend about what my next sewing project should be and she suggested I sew a skirt for my daughter.  I was reminded of the supercute ragged skirt that a girl in the Studio made for my daughter this summer.  Isn’t this skirt precious??  Of course, I’m partial to the model but I think this tiered skirt could make even a tree stump look adorable!  Flora’s skirt was made with our Red Delicious fabrics but could be created with any of the colors in our Jubilee Fabric collection.  In fact, I might take my friend’s advice and make one of these skirts in a different color for next summer!

Do you have a Li’l Dumpling in mind who needs a unique skirt like this in her summer wardrobe?  We’d like to help you get started by giving away a print pattern for this skirt!  This project is easy and rewarding — people will ooh and ahh over her one-of-a-kind skirt.  We offer both a print pattern and a digital download pattern for this project.  The patterns include instructions for small (2/3), medium (4/5), and large (6) and could be easily modified to make even larger sizes.  Maybe matching Mommy & Me skirts??

To enter the giveaway for this Li’l Dumpling Girls Ragged Skirt Pattern, simply leave a comment on this blog.  Tell me what color skirt you would make!  Entries will be accepted through Saturday, January 14th.

    I LOVE this skirt, and I am so glad you all shared this on your blog! I’ve been wanting to make myself (I don’t have a daughter yet, and no nieces) a skirt, and this appears to be simple enough for me to make. :o) I would make a multi-color skirt of out the bright homespun that you sell!
