Last year for the 4th of July I made this ruffle dress. This year I wanted something a little more casual. Last month while visiting family in Utah I went to the Fabric Center and bought some large red, white & blue ric-rac.
At Walmart I picked up this tiered skirt
The best part is that it was only $3
I measured out how much ric-rac I would need and finished off the ends. I pinned the ric-rac so that I could sew a straight line and catch the skirt.
The ends aren't perfect, it really doesn't show when it's done.
I made sure to put the white in the middle layer so it would show. To prevent bleeding I washed and dried the red and blue ric-rac before sewing.
Doesn't it look patriotic?
I'm sure you could make one of these skirts out of an old t-shirt too. It's fun and festive.
