Thanks for the tutorial! Following it where appropriate and adlibbing where necessary, I made a version of this skirt for my Halloween costume. I present: the dreaded Dustruffle Bee:



Face blanked because I look ridiculous in this pic. Basically, the front is black and I omitted the ruffle, and the back is alternating black and yellow, with two extra sections that decrease in width to sort of look like a bee's abdomen. It took me about four hours and probably two and a half meters of cotton broadcloth, and worked brilliantly. I'll probably make a non-costume skirt too now that I've seen how awesome it looks even when I'm flying by the seat of my pants Smiley

i am so for tasteful revival of the bustle!  i added some ruffles to the bottom of a hoodie i've been working on, with a few extra layers in the back.  yours is much neater looking though.  thanks so much for the tutorial--i think i'd like a skirt like yours.

Sorry to rake up an old thread but I just wanted to say thank you!
I've been staring and staring at a picture of the same skirt in white on f+f to see if I can figure out how it's made, with no luck Sad This tutorial is perfect though!
And I noticed you have the same pattern making book I do too Tongue
