I spotted this skirt. I would love to make my dd something similar. I believe she may have gotten the pattern from youcanmakethis.com. I would love to buy the pattern and make one, but I do not have funds available for that at this time.
I have instructions for a tiered skirt, I'm pretty sure that I could make the waistband(yoke?) from that pattern and then just cut vertical strips to make the skirt. Also, I know the petty coat is attached on the seam of the waist and strips area of the skirt. The things I'm not sure of is how many strips I would need, or rather how much I would need to increase the measurement from the waist measurement. double?? triple??(my instructions include information to figure the length for the layers of the tiered skirt, maybe I should use one of those figures??) Also, would I want the petty coat to have the same measurements as the finished strip area or would it need to be bigger or smaller? And I assume that I would want the ruffle on the petty coat to be 1 1/2 or 2 times the length of the petty coat before gathered.
I hope this makes sense and I would be very thankful for any help. Also if anyones interested I can post the link to the tiered skirt tutorial. I haven't made one yet, but from the best I can tell the instructions are accurate and very detailed.
