From the first time I saw Shakira in this video I tried to figure out to make this skirt. I find this fabric so different to the original that I had in mind but I think it makes it a little more elegant version.
I just cut the upper side according to my measurements and the long long pieces of fabric for make the ruffles.
Finally a tie on the hips. It is not exactly but the original idea came from this.
