Thanks.  Grin

For that dress (for an almost 4 yr old girl) I used less than 1 metre (39 inches).

It was really cheap fabric - only cost me about $1 (it was on sale) and the white trim was about 50cents a metre . So that's less than $2 for that dress!

Has anyone else tried this style skirt (meaning w/o actually buying the pattern)? 

I understand how it's constructed and now am trying to figure out pattern dimensions for my 8 YO (who is very fussy about skirt lengths).  I'm worried I'll make it too short & too poufy.   Roll Eyes  Do you think you'd cut the spiral shorter to make it less, ummm, voluminous?   Or would you cut it on a more gradual/less tight curve?  I know how to sew it together but am having a hard time understanding how the cut affects the final design.

Also, if someone has guidelines RE: how much fabric to buy if you want to vary the gores it would be appreciated.  I wonder why on earth did they draft this pattern w/5 gores... why use a prime number?!  You either have to do all 1 color or 5 different colors.  At least w/6 gores you'd have the option to use 1, 2, 3, or 6 colors/fabrics.  The math is weird on this one.

Thanks, that's a better pic than the one I was working with.  Now I just have to figure out how much fabric each gore takes!  I'm guessing 1/2 yd or less, depending on size of your kiddo.
