Birdcage Balloon Skirt

Another Balloon Skirt from my favorite Japanese sewing book. Unfortunately, I don’t read Japanese so I can’t share the title, but I’ve attached an image of the book cover. The isbn # is 9784471400682 if anyone wants to try to find it online.
Given how simple the skirt is (just 2 rectangular pieces with elastic at the waist and hem!), I really wanted to find a unique fabric pattern. I bought this Jackdaws White from OnlineFabricStore.net on a whim, and I knew that it would be perfect for this project. It’s such a wearable skirt, especially for a mom-on-the-go, but just fancy enough to not look “too comfortable” ;) I’ve been pleasantly surprised by the number of compliments I’ve received on this one.
