Description

What originally began as a simple A-Line skirt in my mind, turned into layers of gathers and tulle by the time I started cutting!!

There wasn’t supposed to be a lining on the inside, but once I finished it, I felt like the skirt looked a little flat and limp, so I took the whole thing apart and added some to it.

But it still looked lifeless! Hmm…what to do…Then I remembered that I had some tulle lying around, so I decided to add two gathered layers of tulle to the bottom of the lining. So much work!

      Yes! the Tulle was a bit of a garmet-saver – I may have tossed it otherwise. Thank you!
