Castle Peeps Skirt

I thought about making this skirt for a long time. I really need to start using my precious fabric so I finally got it out, cut it and made this. It was so much fun! And it turned out just as I wanted. I only had fat quarters of the Castle Peeps fabric, so I made this up as I went along, using the amounts of fabric I had. The bottom ruffle is from Riley Blake Bloom and Grow - I think it compliments the Castle Peeps perfectly.
Miriam loves to wear it. We call it her princess skirt and she sings the theme song to the show Little Princess while she wears it. As you can see (and as I'm sure many of you experience), it's impossible to get her to stay still and pose for a photo!
I have so many cute fat quarters, but no skirt patterns that use the right sizes. That's why I've made up some patterns myself. I could write up a tutorial and measurements for how to make ruffled skirts using only fat quarters. Anyone interested?


  1. I'm very interested! I've been watching fat quarters of Liberty fabrics on eBay and would like to make clothes for my girls. But I'm not a patchworker and only have a vague idea about what a fat quarter is! Your skirt is gorgeous and it looks beautiful on your daughter.

  2. SO cute Jill ! ..and hasn't M grown - wow ! She looks like you I think :)
