The skirt was inspired by the 1/2 yard piece of Alexander Henry apples and pear fabric that I've been hanging onto in the stash for well over a year or two! The super jumbo ric rac was such a fun addition to the hem. I picked that up at the 1/2 price ribbon sale at Hobby Lobby while in Arizona. I have to say, the part I am most "thankful" for is when a project comes together entirely with material and stuff had on hand. Nothing additional needed to be purchased! Even I am a little impressed when I can pull a skirt like this out of the fabric stash (starting at 10pm!).
In case you have a little girl who wears a size 6, I'd be happy to pass along my dimensions for the three rectangles that I used for this skirt, just leave me a comment if you want my numbers. If you don't have a soon-to-be 6 year old for whom you'd like to make a skirt and still want to make one, THIS remains my favorite tiered skirt tutorial and method of construction. I don't have to figured out the math anymore, and I do think there might be more straight forward ways of getting the dimensions (remember you can always round up or down to simply). But, I do know that when I have gone through the numbers carefully with my waist measurments, I have been happy with the fit and fullness of the final skirt product.
Hope that helps. HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!
