Today we get to show you a Peekaboo Pattern Shop skirt pattern we’ve really been looking forward to sewing and showing you! The Adele Three Tier Ruffle Skirt’s name says it all.
This skirt can be made with woven or knit fabrics (although the waistband is knit no matter what you make the ruffles from.) The size range of the Adele Three Tier Ruffle Skirt is 3 months to 8 years.
I really hope someone I know has a baby girl soon because it would be so fun to make this in the teeny 3 month size! Just a warning if I know you. And you’re expecting. And you have a girl!
There is only one pattern piece, for the skirt lining, and the rest of the skirt uses rectangular measurements, so those of you in the tiling-pattern-haters-club can rest assured!
As with all Peekaboo Pattern Shop patterns we’ve sewn, the Adele Three Tier Ruffle Skirt instructions are easy to follow. This skirt took a little longer to sew than last week’s skirt, but with all the tiers and ruffling, that was to be expected. (At least it wasn’t over 25 yards of fabric to be gathered like this skirt we made!!!)
One really fun aspect of the Adele Three Tier Ruffle Skirt is the wide waistband that can also be folded over for a yoga waistband effect. The only change I made to the pattern was to add elastic to the waistband as the knit I chose for the waistband fabric didn’t have as good of recovery as recommended. But there was a good reason I chose that knit, and I knew about the stretch recovery going into it!
The fabrics used to make Adele Three Tier Ruffle Skirt are all cotton interlock knit fabrics from The Fabric Fairy. The Fabric Fairy has so many awesome knits in beautiful shades of color that we were able to pick out 4 different shades of blue for an ombre look.
This cotton interlock fabric is soft and easy to work with when sewing. We have been so delighted with all the fabric we’ve received from The Fabric Fairy.
