OoOh.
A really funky thing you could do is cut fabric to go in the slits, if you don't like them, or some lace for a shexier look.  Wink

I can't wait to try it!  Do you think it will translate well into a nice stretchy jersey or viscose type material without being too difficult for a pitiful novice sewer like me?

Then he asked,"Lord, what about when there was one set of footprints on one side and also a straight line with bootprints on one side and small round circles on the other?" The Lord replied, "Those were when I carried you, and we were joined by a pirate pushing a wheelbarrow."

Oh, hey, of course I realize everyone is a different size, but about how much fabric did it take you to make one skirt?

Do you think that I would need to add extra material in between the bottoms of the pieces if I wanted to sew up all the slits and still be able to walk and have a sort of flowy skirt?

I've mesured the first skirt. Each panel is at most 60x30cm (23,6x11,8 inches), and you need 8 of them, so...

Haven't tried but why not Cheesy it'll make it more flowing
------------------------------------

The original had a simple shaped lining (only 2 panels), so that your legs stay hidden Wink ; on the second skirt I added ruffles on it

I don't know what would be the result if you had fabric in the bottom, maybe a kind of circle skirt Huh

Thank you for this super easy tutorial! I've never successfully sewn clothing before... until this skirt! Here's my first attempt:




Don't mind the dirty mirror. :x

I plan to be making many more of these in cotton prints once I have some free time. (:

What is the width of the panel at the bottom?  I am not confident to just 'wing it'.  Thanks, J Huh
