hey guys, this picture fell into my lap a few days ago, I cut it out of a magazine a few years back cuz it looked fairy-ish. So now I decided, I might attempt to sew it. I drew a little quick demonstration below to clearify what I am trying to say here.  Cheesy

1. I know that the fringe effect is because it's square, but do you just cut a hole in the middle of a yard of fabric? Or how would you cut it to get this effect, since it is 4 corners in the front?

2. I would like to ask if you guys would take a underdess and sew 3 parts that are nealry equal long in 3 different places (under bust, upper waist, belly button) or would you sew it all under the bust and make the last layer the longest almost as like a dress itself.

3. And are those tiny folds created like pleats? *awaits reply in terror!*

And last question. I'm a L/XL, how much chiffon do you think I would need?


Below is a link to the big image, since craftster resizes them (which is awesome, don't get me wrong LOL  Cheesy

Im afraid I can't make heads nor tails of the drawing but it looks to me (possibly) like each layer is made up of two squares of fabric with circles in the middle.. one side of each is cut and sewn together to make it a double handkerchief skirt?
