What should have been a fun and flippy skirt is a skirt that is shaped like a fluted bell. A full-bodied fluted bell that will not be moved. The fabric is way too stiff. The flounce in the back falls awkwardly. On my skirt, the center of the flounce is inverted and the sides stick out awkwardly. The envelope illustration shows that it should fall oppositely -- the sides should be inverted and the center stick out.
|Betcha think I'm twirling! I'm not.|
Aside from my tragic fabric choice, I went all out in construction (which took a while because I was in and out of town) with bound seams. I even did my best to find an orange zipper in my stash.
Still, I like the shape of this skirt and the seam detailing. I might sew this again but in a fabric with the right amount of drape and a lot less body.
