I wanted a good party skirt, so when I fell in love with the perfect fabric – a champagne-colored, satin brocade, I made this poufy, high-waist mini skirt.
I didn’t use any pattern, just a calculator and rotary cutter. I made a rectangle for the waistband, and then doubled the width for the skirt squares – so easy, I think it only took a couple hours at most to make it all! Although I probably spent more time hand-stitching the hem and the inside waist than anything else…
