Then the fun part began...I cut off the bottom of the shirt (where I pinned it) and the top of the cami.
*I had to use three different colors of cami's because they didn't have three of the same color, but I love how it turned out.
I measured how long my skirt was (20") and divided it by 4 (for 4 ruffles) so I would know how long to make my ruffles. I actually made mine 6" so that they would overlap each other (and that was the max that I could do with the material I had).
I sewed the shirt and skirt together. Make sure you pull a little on the material or when you try it on the stitch will pop and you will have to sew it again! Trust me, this is an important step.
Next I cut off the seams because I needed to piece them together to make them long enough to gather. I also wanted all the seams to look the same. You don't have to do this but I think it looks better.
Then, on one side of the band, I used my sewing machine like this to make a ruffle. Don't hem the other end. Knit will not fray!
Then, mark out where you want the ruffle to go and sew each ruffle onto the skirt.
*Two things I learned...
1- Use chalk for your markings, and
2- Pull on your fabric while sewing your ruffles on or the seams will pop on you when you sit down!
With the left over fabric make something for your hair!
