A letter came home today with Sam's backpack saying that she needed to wear a skirt to perform a dance for Cinco De Mayo. Sam really wanted a traditional Spanish Folk Dance outfit but her teacher and I convinced her that a shorter skirt with a ruffle perhaps would be perfect as she needed to be able to shuffle her feet for the dance.
I went to my stash of fabric from my mother-in-law's quilting days and found this beautiful colorful striped piece. We decided to add it to Sam's denim skort and make a new Cinco de Mayo ruffle skirt!
