Costume Party: The Musketeers, Part 2

Part 2, The Pettiskirt

This part is almost exactly like Part 1, except we are adding a ruffle to it.
(Remember, I will be making the tutorials in size 5T. You can add a little length for older kids or shorten for smaller sizes.)

Materials needed:


1 yard of white cotton fabric (or nice muslin)
approx. 2/3 yard of 1 inch wide elastic
basic sewing supplies



Cut two strips of fabric 9 inches by width of fabric (approx. 44") for the main skirt piece. Cut one strip of fabric 6 inches by 30 inches long. Cut four strips 2.5 inches by width of fabric for bottom ruffle.




Sew the four ruffle pieces together and hem the bottom or finish with a rolled hem edge.


With right sides together, stitch the short ends together. Gather the top of the ruffle.

Sew the two skirt pieces together on the short ends.  Attach the ruffle to the bottom of the skirt portion.

Now, just jump on over to Part 1 and finish the pettiskirt exactly like the skirt.

thanks for your tutorial and all of your works. In this tutorial, there´s something not so clear. What should we do with the strip of fabric 6 inches by 30 inches long?
