Anyone know where I can find a pattern like this? (The layered skirt, letter E)

Thank you!

I don't think you need a pattern for this. Such a skirt is made of rectangles of fabric, sewn into tubes.

The first rectangle is for example 1.5 times the waist measurement wide. The second is 1.5 times the first rectangle. The first can be gathered with elastic or a drawstring. The second is gathered and sewn onto the bottom of the first rectangle. The length is up to you.

You can increase the width of the rectangles with any number you like, as long as it higher than 1. 1.5 to 2 is common, the higher the number the poofier the skirt. (With 1 the skirt is just straight, because the width doesn't increase.)

The skirt on the picture has several layers. I think you can ad additional layers whenever you want. So you can attach a ruffle to an underskirt and let that ruffle be longer. Or you can sew two ruffles onto the top most layer.

ah, that makes sense, even to me! Smiley  i was just thinking that i could do something a little like a tiered ruffly skirt that i've done.  your tips make it so much simpler.  thanks very much, i'm going to give it a try.


thanks again!
