I like this tutorial but you can make your own body to attach very easy. I am glad to see this petticoat out of fabric instead of tulle. I do not like working with tulle. This petticoat is so cute I can see wearing it as a skirt. I agree I would hem the bottom of each ruffle to give it a finished look. Thanks for tutorial.

Well I hope the ones from the tutorial turn out better than the one in the picture. Very uneven hemlines on the ruffles and the "underskirt" does not have to be an old skirt. Simply make a cylinder shape with plain material and sew the ruffles on to it.

Very cute skirt...but again, it's disappointing to find out that you already need a skirt that you like to make this skirt. I sew for my granddaughters and don't have access to skirts they have and like. Even for myself it is hard to find something to copy. This skirt underskirt part doesn't seem that difficult and I'm surprised that you didn't include some simple measurements or a simple pdf pattern.

I absolutely love this skirt!!! I just finished two of them for two of my daughters for back to school!! They were so excited to be able to help pick out their very own fabric out of my bin. (one choosing yellow John Deer Tractor fabric LOL) Thank you so much!! Now time to make momma one!!!
