The style of this skirt reminded me of a fiesta which is why I named it after Mardi Gras. Out of the handful of words I retained from the six credits of French I took in college, I managed to remember the translation for skirt- which is jupe. Since the french language is so rooted in Louisiana, I thought it would fit perfectly with this skirt.

You can’t tell very well from the top and right photographs but I used a hankerchief-feel, threadbare cotton fabric- gauzy enough to barely see through. To offset the navy I added a white rickrack. It is a tiered skirt and I used double-the-fabric for each subsequent tier to really give the skirt full body.

On a separate note, I’ll be using a smaller version of the tissue paper flowers for the guests at the girls birthday party in July. They’re so easy to make and look so lively. Great to tie onto a ponytail.
