Oh goodness... my mom wants to make this a "Mom-daughter thing" and make skirts that (kinda) match. Mines going to be red and white striped if I can manage it and hers is going to be kinda short and "mom's office appropriate"... honestly!

Lol anyway, that's not the point... my point is (and I feel like a stupid silly for saying it...) What is a serger?

No wonder she doesn't trust me to sew my own clothes... I'm hopeless!
I can't beleive I have to sneak sew behind her back lol

Yes,your not the only one! i spent a few months pondering the idea of making my own flamenco skirt, but had alot of trouble finding a pattern. finally i broke down and paid a lovely flamenca seamstress $130 to have one custom made. my plan was to then use that as a pattern. the thing is i have fallen in love with several differant stlyes of flamenco skirts iv seen, so im hopeing to use a combination of your handy pattern, as well as my new skirt to create what i envision, and maybe become a better seamstress
in the process! Cheesy
I am also working on another flamenco related/inspired art project that is only in the beginning stages, but will hopfully be posted soon.

You can overcast the edges of the ruffle with a standard sewing maching.  It's easier with an overcasting foot, but completely doable without it.

Then I got smart and bought a mini serger. Now I serge the edge of the ruffle. It saves A LOT of time.

I have recently considered buying a mini serger and was wondering if they really worked?  The skirt looks fabulous!
