How to sew a ruffled denim skirt

If you have a sewing machine and can cut and sew a straight line, you can make this skirt {or a similar version}

What I didn’t love was the length. I’m tall and prefer either floor-length skirts or knee length. This above ankle length is uncomfortable to me and mid-calf lengths make me look awkward too. Ha! I decided to cut off the skirt at my knee and then add fabric ruffles.

I cut each fabric into 3″ strips. I didn’t use all the fabric, but I had 3 – 3″ strips of each. I may make some fabric accessories out of the scraps.

I sewed the fabric strips {right sides together} end to end for the bottom ruffle. Then I sewed a wide stitch seam on one side of the long strip. It took a few minutes to pull the thread and gather the fabric evenly. After that was done, I pinned it to the skirt and sewed it on, right over the gathering stitch. To neatly finish the end of the ruffle {where the strip comes together}, I turned under one side and stitched it down.ruffled denim skirt

For the second layer, I sewed the strips end to end with right sides together. Then I turned one edge over about an inch to give the top layer a finished look. Then I stitched the edge with a wide stitch {through both layers of fabric} so I could gather the long strip. Once I got the fabric gathered {you have to pull the thread gently when you’re gathering double layers}, I pinned it in place over the bottom ruffle.

I finished the end of the top ruffle the same way as the bottom layer by turning under the top edge and sewing it down. This is SO easy Y’all!
