  • 3 pieces of raffia skirting, each a different length: 1 1/2 inches, 2 inches, and 3 inches
  • Needle and thread
  • Ribbon


  1. Measure each piece of raffia skirting to fit along the waist of your flower girl, and cut it to the right length.
  2. Layer the grass skirts so that the 3-inch one is on the bottom, the 2-inch one is in the middle, and the 1 1/2-inch one is on the top.
  3. Using a needle and thread, make a hem stitch along the entire length of the top of the peplum. Finish the stitch with a knot.
  4. Sew a piece of ribbon to each end of the peplum for tying it closed.
