I loved the ones I'd seen here on craftster, and I just had to make my own.


This wasn't too hard to do, but it was time consuming.  I decided I didn't want a huge skirt, so I scaled it down so it's about a 3/4 circle.  The squares are 4'x4', I used 65 of them for the bottom tier.  I started gathering from the bottom up, purple to light purple to blue, instead of from the top down, and I think this made the gathering process much easier.  What do you think?  (As I hit "preview," a Jpop song called "Rainbows" started playing on my computer! Ha ha! Cheesy)

Aww, it's so pretty! I think I like this scaled down version better- much more practical. Gorgeous work.

Thank you. I was thinking it would be more practical that way too.  I didn't want it to be so heavy the elastic couldn't hold it.  I'm thinking about wearing this to my SIL's wedding next month.   Cheesy
