One of my favorite new skirts

Amy Butler ruffle skirt

Oh so cute! I have to say it, even though I was the one to make the skirt. (Nothing like gushing over your own projects…) In any case, I made this skirt at the end of last week so I’d have something to wear to the beach. It’s very similar to the previous skirt – shown here – though I made some changes so it would fit more to my liking. I adjusted the total length of the skirt so I could wear it on my hips. (I spent too much time rolling the elastic band down on the first skirt so it would sit where I wanted). The ruffle along the bottom is the same, though I used a different fabric this time. In all actuality, I only had enough of the Optic Blossom fabric to just squeeze out enough material for the skirt part, so the ruffle had to be made of a corresponding fabric. I love these Amy Butler prints together though, so it worked out perfectly. This time the ruffle was attached underneath, and I’m still not sure which I prefer. I’m already thinking about what fabric to use for the next skirt… can you have too many of the same skirt? probably…
