3/2011 Short Dress with Bubble Skirt
Added Apr 1, 2011
Step 2 Cutting Out: NOTE: YOU MAKE THE SKIRT FROM RECTANGLES-- NO PATTERN PIECES
*THERE IS NO SKIRT PATTERN INCLUDED— DRAFT IT YOURSELF. The measurements below indicate outer front & back skirts which are wider than the inner lining skirts. At the hem, you will gather the outer skirts to be as wide as the inner lining skirts, to create the “bubble” effect. See step 7 for the sewing instructions.
