  1. Love this one too! Guess I need to make another fabric store run soon lol! I made the first skirt in the skirt series last night and it was so easy! My daughter loves it! can't wait to try the others. One question, I see you pre washed the fabric for this one, is it bad if you don't?

    Awesome tutorial as always. I noticed that when you were attaching the ruffle it looked like one of those little fun blouses and I was like, "hmmmmm… maybe you can teach us how to do one of those too?" 😉

  15. Gale M says:

    It is helpful to make sure the ruffle fits the skirt before you sew the ruffle into a circle and start pinning it to the skirt. Cute skirt!

  16. I just love your tutorials, so easy to follow!! Can't wait to try these skirts for my little niece!

  17. Hello Melanie, you have a wonderful channel. I am a subscriber of yours. I filmed seperated videos, and as I'm doing this for
    first time to make it in one video. Do You Think I can do it on Youtube
    editer, or this option it's not there? Trimming,adjusting and so on ???
    Thank you

  18. Where did you get that clear Ruler ?
