When Ally & I were in Ohio, she kept noticing cute ruffly skirts for spring. She asked if I would make some for her. Why not? I picked up a couple of different patterns. She chose the fabric for this first one:
This is McCall's 5920. It's a girls pattern, goes up to size 14 which fits Ally perfectly. She normally wears about a size 5 juniors. The pattern has 6 different views with different yokes, ruffle combinations, etc. This is view D.
The pattern went together very easily and I finished it in one day. The yoke is nicely lined, encasing the top seam. If I make this view again, I will do the ruffle on the bottom differently so that the bias tape above encases the bottom seam. Other than that, I would do it exactly the same. Even the zipper went in smoothly (in the back).
The fabric we used (the green and the pink) are both Michael Miller fabrics, sorry I don't know the line (it's Whimsy, I just found it!). Oh, & you will be seeing more of this fabric from me soon. Ally had me buy extra to make a coordinating outfit for a certain little cousin who she (and I!) is particularly fond of! You'll have to keep checking back for that!
