I <3 this pattern! I too have boughten literally dozens of these skirts but have never even thought to try making one, I have tons of scrap fabric so this will be a great project for it all.

Thanks for sharing!!

Love it! Thanks for the tutorial! I too have bought numerous skirts like this, but have a hard time finding long ones since I am tall. Now, I can make some!

It would protect you from all harm
There'd be no sirens to alarm
We could stay here every day
And if I were a super hero
Good guys all the villains zero
I'd save you from all that is evil
So you can sleep at night"

There's much less fabric in the top ruffle than the bottom one. You're supposed to twist it and keep it that way until it dries. That way you get all those great vertical wrinkles. When it's twisted, it resembles a broom. Skinny at the top and full at the bottom.

How do you keep it twisted until it dries without it taking ages to dry?
