heyy guys!

this Halloween I'm being Princess Daisy (you know, from Mario Party?)
but its gonna be a short, realllly poofy skirt.

i asked the lady at the fabric store what to do, since its my first time using a pattern (Simplicity 0516/2832)
and since im mkaing the entire base dress (view e) in yellow crushed panne velour and adding the orange accents separately, im not using any overlays or anything like that.

becfause the fabric is semi-heavy, she told me to use buckram to make a realllly poofy skirt.

thing is, no i have this big rectangle of this stuff, and i have no idea what im doing.

please help me!

Other than using the buckram as interfacing for the skirt I'm not sure how else you could use it for poof.  Huh

I thought that pattern had a petticoat or something already included? Or am I mistaken?
