Hey there-

FANTASTICO!!!!!!!  That's my humble opinion. 

So, about that panel inset.  If one had enough leeway in a standard pillocase, could one use the extra material rather than sewing in a new panel?  So, I'm thinking one would do a pinch and fold maneuver, grommeting through the two layers of fabric that are pinched, then lacing up the grommets.  The material between the grommeted sections would automatically fall behind the lacing to form the panel...Wouldn't they?  Not that the contrasting color doesn't look absolutely fantastic...but for folks like me with (sniff) no sewing machine, who have to sew things (sniff) by hand, saving those two seams would be excellent.

To get the shape, would you lay the skirt flat, where the right edge was the center of the front, and the left edge the center of the back, and then cut in a Poisson curve from left to right?  Or how did you get the shape? And do you cut the bottom hem before or after you've sewed the side-seams? 

I LOVE the ruffle.  I normally don't on pillowcase skirts, but this one, Moi!Perfete!

craft-matic> yes, you could do away with that center back panel IF your pillowcase is large enough (or your ass is small enough), but i prefer the added stability of having my grommets through at least 4 layers of fabric. especially grommets that are going to be under much stress from things like moving. or sitting.
and i cut the curve after my side seams and back panel were in place. i just sort of layed it out flat (inside out) as you have described and....er.....took my universal pattern drafting curve and a pencil to it until it was a shape i liked. same deal with the waistband, but to a less dramatic degree.

i am bad for drafting on the fabric....  Undecided

That skirt is soooo incredible! I actually said "wow" out loud when I saw it and then proceeded to showed it to my brother because I had to share its awesomeness with somebody.

Seriously amazing and inspiring! Nice job! Grin
