Ruffles, Take Two

More ruffles, this time in the form of a skirt.  I often buy fat quarters when I spot a print I like.  A fat quarter  fits my budget.  But what to do with them?

I used these two fat quarters to make long strips which I hemmed on the serger, gathered, and layered on the bottom of a cotton skirt.

That's V, dressed haphazardly like Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen.  Or like a three year old.  It works.  If only I could get away with that at the office - a combination of my pyjamas and sunglasses.  Bliss.
