I ended up with this:

when aiming for this:

I know where I messed up. and I can see now where I could have simplified the pattern I drafted.

- elongate the skirt area, that's why I had to add the rufflage, way too short
- instead of have 4 pieces for the top, I can just have two. kind of fond of the 4 piece design I drew out though
-do a box ruffle at each joint (instead of many regular ruffles that made the fabric bunch)

all in all, not exactly what I hoped for, but neat nonetheless.

what do you think?

I think it's really cute! Hahaha, that's funny, I tried making a skirt similar to what you were going for. But I actually like your version better!

It's not what you were aiming for, but it's so adorable!! The colors look really great together, and I love those buttons. Just think, once you edit your pattern and try it again, you're going to have two different adorable skirts!

It's cute, though! The original's pretty, too. Next try could still look steampunk... that's what I would try for Smiley
