One Ruffle Repurposed Jean Skirt

Here's another one of my ruffle jean skirts, with only one ruffle,
  that I created to donate to
 girls in the foster care program.    
It is for a little girl that wears a size Toddler 2. 



My inspiration was this darling Eric Carle print fabric inspired by the book, "Polar Bear, Polar Bear, What Do You See"
Polar Bear Dots Fabric

I cut a horizontal strip to create a boarder print ruffle for the jeans skirt. In fact, I cut 2 matching strips to make the full gathered strip added to the jean yoke. 







 If you want to make this skirt, here are some links to the different blog posts that show you, with written instructions and photos, how to make the skirt.
