Introduction: Ruffled Gingham Skirt (red)

This is a skirt I made for my girlfriend's 5 year old daughter. She's such a sweet little girl and loves a twirly skirt. The fabric is quite light and floaty and there is enough of a gather to make it nice and swirly. The ruffle adds a cute element and I've added a sweet little flower embellishment using a piece of an old pair of jeans and a heart-shaped button. 

I used this GREAT tutorial for the basic skirt:
and then just added a simple ruffle to the bottom.

This is a great tutorial on how to gather fabric the right way:

And this is a tutorial on making 7 different ruffles:

I can't wait to give the skirt to her for Christmas tomorrow!
