With all the warmer weather we have been having, I decided I needed to finally make Ella the adorable Ruffle Sleeve Top and Mini Skirt from the pattern I won from Pink Poodle Bows back in late January. You can read all about the contest I won hosted by KoJo Designs here.

The pattern instructions are super easy to follow, and although you don't have to have paper pattern pieces to cut it out, they are provided for those who prefer them. I just used the dimensions specified for a 4T and cut out all the rectangles, but I did use the cut-out guide provided in the pattern for removing a curve piece from the sleeve and a triangle from the bottom of the top.
The skirt took probably 15 minutes total to make. I'm really happy with how it fits Ella, and I plan on using this pattern for making a few more skirts for the summer.
The flutter sleeves are adorable, and Ella loves them because they make her feel like a butterfly!
