I was watching the Angel episode "Orpheus" last week and realized that (a) it's a really good episode; and (b) I really liked Fred's skirt. Here it is:
So I decided to make one of my own, only replacing the ruffle bit with a large pleat. I took an existing skirt for a pattern, traced it out, and then cut out the bottom and top bits out of fabric and essentially just kept looking back at the "example" skirt to figure out how to put it together.
Here's the front:
And here's the back:
Were I to make it again, I would make the panel top bit smaller, move the little ribbony bow thing more to the middle, and make the ribonny bit curve up towards the waist.
I tried to make my dog look as much like Wesley as possible, but she just doesn't look quite Watchery enough does she? Well, you work with what you have. I like to think that she's lying there thinking about what a bad idea it was to desoul Angel...
