After Stephanie made Gracie birthday dress we had some fabric left over to make a few more pieces of clothes. I took some of the fabric and made the green polka dot pants, whimsical multicolored flower pants that you can find here in my blog site.
This little girls ruffle top, I made by using a portion of the same pattern from the birthday dress and added the ruffle to the bottom of the top.
Now the ruffle piece... I just cut a 3 1/2 inch wide piece and the length I doubled from the length of the bottom of the bodice (top). If I need to shorten the ruffle piece it won't be hard to do.
