Cascade Ruffle Dress (Tutorial!)


Here is my next tutorial for our Sew It Yourself: Kid Clothes series!

Supplies:
Jersey Knit
Sewing machine with sewing tools

I used the Cascading ruffle Skirt tutorial from Lil Blue Boo, but I didn't add the elastic for the waist.  Ashley has a FULL tutorial with downloads to make this cute skirt!
Once you have completed the skirt, put it aside and we will make the top.
Now use a tank top that fits your daughter to make a pattern for the top.  Make a pattern for the front and back.  I folded my shirt in half and traced.

Place your pattern on the fold of your fabric cut out 1 front and 1 back.

Optional: Surge the sides to give it a finished edge.  You also could hem or use knit binding to finish the edges as well. I am lazy so I left the edges surged and called it good!

Place Right sides together and sew the shoulders and the sides together to make the top. 

With right sides together pin your top and skirt together and sew... and you are done!!

It is the perfect comfy summer dress!
Run, dance, and jump for joy!
Shake your booty!
"Mommy, Daddy's lawn mowing is loud!"
