I found a great 8-paneled Princess skirt tutorial, complete with instructions for adults that would work on a curvy girl like myself, too.  So I set out to make Mama a new skirt.  The skirt itself is SO easy, but the cutting was a giant pain in my oversized butt!  That was probably mostly my own fault since I extended the length to my ankles, making the panels a challenge to cut out!

I made the panels about 6" wider than the tutorial measurements would have given me, but I wanted it to be nice and full.  Here is a before of it, pre-elastic in the waist:

Now I may be slightly fluffy,... but at 137" around?  That's big even for me!!  And that pic?  That is only 1/2 of the skirt!

But with elastic,... it is just fine!  Note:  The flash DID not enjoy sparkly eyeshadow,... so please ignore!

And a close-up of my fun fabrics,...

Pattern used:  Eight Panel Princess Skirt

The skirt is great, and I absolutely adore the fabric, especially the pink bandana fabric and the pony print (brown cow) fabric.  I bet the skirt provides a lot of twirly fun!  Smiley

This is so awesome! I want one! Thank you for posting the link to the tutorial, it's the first one with math that I've understood. I really adore this skirt.
