gobbolino! my my...i've been browsing that site since the beginning.  i love your versions! green is my all time favourite colour!  i hope you don't mind me asking, but for the skirt - did you use a circle skirt type pattern or did you do something different? i've always wanted one of those skirts

I don't mind you asking at all. For the skirt I just cut a retangle of fabric 2 times my waist size sewed the 2 open ends together and fit it with elastic. Pretty easy really.

Wahey, my post inspired some creativity! (obviously not mine, as I haven't bothered to start the skirt yet no money = no lace & no fabric = no skirt.)

Having read how you made yours, and how another user explained it on my thread, I'm guessing that this is how it works out (pretty much) - I'm not very good at visualising things.



Though I was slightly confused when you said you 'fitted' the elastic - did you do it after you had sewn the two ends together? I would have assumed that you stitched a little sort of 'casing' for the elastic to pass through, pulled the elastic through it to ruffle the skirt, and sewed the two ends together.

Damn me for not understanding supposedly simple things.

NVA, Izzy...thank you!  that's awesome, i'm gonna get to work on making mine! one thing though, when you measure the elastic - is it half the length of the skirt?  i'm guessing that's what makes it ruffle, and fit to your waist....maybe i'm wrong

I just made the elastic the size of my waist. The more fabric you have the more ruffles will be made.

My walmart has tons of plaid fabric in the one doller per yard section, it may not be exactly what you want, but it would be fairly cheap.
