mini diy > ruffles

I picked up a whole bunch of different eyelet trim quite a long time ago at the thrift store. I love this skirt but I felt like adding some to the bottom to make it a little cuter.

This was another really easy project. I just pinned the edging to the bottom of the skirt and then used my sewing machine to sew along the stitch line that was already there.

Show me a photo if you add some cute trim to one of your dresses or skirts!
