Crochet: Ruffled Skirt


I just now got around to making this little ruffled crochet skirt for Audrey to go with the lavender cardi I made her this summer. It turned out pretty cute! Audrey was excited about it, which of course totally makes it for me!



She said, "Mom, it's like your skirt," when I was showing her how the drawstring works. She's referring to this vintage looking crochet skirt I made a few years ago. I love it when she likes things of mine or things I make--I feel it may be a time-limited state of mind for her so I'm making the most of it!


The skirt came together pretty quickly, which is a prerequisite these days. I used this pattern from Sandy's Cape Cod Originals and Lily Sugar n' Cream yarn in Warm Brown. I seriously have about a drawer full of Sugar n' Cream yarn with everything I have been crocheting with it this summer and more hats planned for the Fall. At least I've got less of the brown stashed now.


I never quite know how it's going to go trying to get pictures of Audrey but I always know it will be quick! She likes to goof off and run away most of the time but I still managed to get some cute shots.

 

Boo!

When I see things like this, I am convinced I need to learn to crochet. That skirt is killing me with cuteness.

So cute! Probably a little more ambitious of a project that I'd take on for my 3 yr old but I'd consider doing something like that in a newborn size... hmmmm...

Oh. my. goodness. I LOVE it! I just made my daughter a "skirt" from a random crocheted block I found in a bag of hand-me-down yarn from my grandmother. It isn't as cute as this though! :)

This is vintage gorgeous and brings back so many memories. I had a burgundy one in the 70s, and wore it everywhere. You have a beautiful model!

Love this!! I just went on her site and purchased this same skirt pattern. Cannot wait to get started on it and do hope that mine turns out half as cute as yours!!

It turned out lovely. Both the skirt and the sweater fit perfectly together. Your daughter knows her fashion - very nice of her to notice your skirt and compare them. :)

Hi, can you send me a picture to what the ruffles look like in the very back where they meet from row to row? I just started mine this weekend and I am curious to see what yours looked like compared to mine. THanks! luvbncarlysmom@aol.com
