Approximate Measurement GuideWaistband: Measure the waist of your pretty little girl. Then add about 4 inches. That's the length. The height should be about between 4-8", depending on how big your little girl is. Ruffle skirt: Double the measurement of the waist (before you add 4 inches) for the length. For the height, measure from the hip bone to the knee. Then add about 2 inches. Apron: Half the measurement of the Ruffle skirt length for this length and subtract 2-3" from the hip-knee measurement (without the added 2 in). Confused? Here's an example: Waistband: 20" x 4" Ruffle Skirt: 32" x 12" Apron: 16" x 7" **Disclaimer: if you don't have fabric that long, you can divide it in half and cut two pieces (plus an inch for the seam) and sew them together. This is the general measurement guide I use every time I made skirts. I'm going to refer back to this post for all my future elastic waist/ruffle skirt tutorials.
