Polka dots, Gingham, and Cherries!

Just a Little DIY Skirt!

My favorite Rockabilly designs are polka dots, gingham, and cherries. The other day I was playing around with some of these fabrics and ended up making my daughter a little ruffle skirt with them. The top is just thick white elastic with red velvet sewn around it. Very simple, no pattern- just a few ruffles sewn to a black and white polka dot piece of fabric, then sewn to the covered elastic piece- but she loved it and was all too happy to model it for me!

About Rockabelle Bombshell

I am a single mom of a 13 yr old boy and 6 yr old girl. I love DIY projects of all types, and everything Rockabilly! I love the Icons of the 50's, as well as classic cars, pinups, retro appliances and decor, and victorian gothic furniture. I think of myself as a tattooed 1950's transplant... definitely born in the wrong era! I love thrifting and "junking"- I rarely see junk, I see things for their possibilities! I started this blog to document my DIY adventures as I attempt to upcycle and recreate my furniture and home decor, add a Rockabilly touch to as much clothing as I can, make life fun for my kids, and share my love of Rockabilly!
