Toddler Ruffle Skirt

Wow.  This was by far the most difficult sewing project I have done.  Usually I sew things that are
very forgiving.  Luckily, I got a really good tip on how to make the ruffles!
Sew a zig-zag stitch (as wide as you can make it) over embroidery floss.  Make sure that you do not catch the floss in the sewn stitch.
Then, you can scrunch the fabric down the floss, and after you have basted it, pull out the floss. 
This pattern was from Pink Fig Patterns - and man, do they have some cute stuff!
