I made this skirt way back when the Olympics were on TV, but I’ve only now got around to taking pictures.
I wanted to try and not use a zipper for the fastening, because this cotton sateen would get ruined if it got caught in the teeth. So I made a placket and put two hooks and eyes at the centre back, which work quite well!
Those six panels give this skirt a lot of volume!
And a lot of volume equals maximum swooshTM .
The goal here was to make a fantasy-character-esque skirt, which I think I definitely achieved! I had debated making it a midi-length skirt for a few months, but I do like this length. Besides, I have future plans for midi-length skirts.
Honestly, this skirt was a lot of work, so I am as yet unsure if I’d do it again! Maybe I should use a pattern next time.
Anyways, see ya!
