Anyone familiar with 1980's fashion, will be acquainted with short layered skirts that were popular at the time; Rah-rah skirts
Apparently, Rah-rah skirts were originally worn on the bottom half of a cheer-leading uniform, which then became a fashion trend in the early 1980's.
Rah-rah skirts are not as common as they were in the 80's, however, they do look super cute on little girls, a great example seen here.
Earlier blog readers may remember a ruffle skirt I made for a little girl a few years ago, using a bunch of old t-shirts and jersey fabric. If you didn't see it, here is the blog post.
Using the same pattern, but this time using strips of leftover fabric rather than old t-shirts, I've made a Rah-rah skirt for a friend's 3yr old daughter.
Sadly the pattern I've used is no longer available to buy through LillyGiggle.com, but if any readers wanted to know how to sew a ruffle from a strip of fabric, please leave a comment below and I'll write up a quick tutorial.
