your basic tube waistband + long peice of fabric. gather/ pleat the long one to fit the tube waistband. i love this colour combination. i added various ribbons, braids, scraps of fabric for subtle but cute decoration!

i love it so much!! Cheesy i usually do reconstructions, but i cant stop gushing about this one. it twirls really well too!
(my attempt at a twirl picture, harder than it sounds! lol)

i loved this so much, i had to make another one....

....but i mis-measured and made it too big for me. now it needs a new owner Sad

for this one, i added 2 long straps of fabric on either side (inspired by overalls that i never wore properly as a kid- i always let the top bib-part dangle infront of me and wear them as pants Tongue) then i also added various ribbonsss for decoration!

I love them! cute decorations
I've been trying to make myself a skirt but no luck so far. They always come out lopsidey or don't fit right...
