Project 8: alisaburke Petticoat Tutorial

 Petticoat Tutorial: For the last year, I have been looking for a petticoat-
Materials required,
two or more coordinating fabrics
scissors
sewing machine
pins
elastic

Cut front and back of skirt pattern.
Cut several strips of fabric (the more strips, the fluffier the skirt) twice as wide as the panel (this is where you may alternate the colors to add interest to the skirt)
Sew a long straight stitch in the fabric
Pull the top thread to create the ruffle
Pin ruffle so it is even on the skirt panel
Repeat with every fabric strip,
sew to skirt
sew front and back panels together
Add elastic to waist
Enjoy!
